Creative Economy in Indonesia
We had a fruitful and thoughtful discussion about the future of music industry in Indonesia yesterday afternoon. We are worried about the high number of piracy. Our state suffers a huge potential economic lost because of that. However, we are committed to find a solution, in fact we do have found it and come up with a very concrete step since we meet with this guy: Mr Arif Yahya. Thanks to him.
We do hope that in the next future we as nation could do much better appreciation to those who choose to live a life in creative economy sector. We want the kind of Indonesia that is free from piracy acts and able to give a greater protection to all form intellectual as well as copy right.
