JAKARTADAILY.ID – The Minister of Law and Human Rights, Yasonna Laoly said that YouTube content can legally be used as collateral for bank and non-bank loans.

According to Yasonna, this is due to a provision that has been regulated in Government Regulation (PP) Number 24 of 2022 concerning the Creative Economy.

"This means that intellectual property certificates can be guaranteed at a fiduciary bank," Yasonna said, quoted from the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DJKI) Youtube channel, Sunday, July 24, 2022.

Yasonna explained that the PP, among others, regulates financing schemes obtained by creative financial actors through intellectual property-based banks and non-bank financial institutions.

Yasonna gave an example, if an intellectual property such as a song or video copyright has a certificate that has been uploaded to Youtube and has many viewers, then the certificate can be used as a bank loan collateral.

"If we have created a song on YouTube, there are millions of viewers, the certificate already has a selling value, if we suddenly need money," he said.

"So, the higher the brand value and intellectual property, the bigger the loan value," he continued.

Yasonna added that Youtube content that can be guaranteed is that which comes from copyrights or brands that have been registered with the Directorate General of Intellectual Property.

Previously, during the "Yasonna Hearing" activity in Surakarta, Wednesday, July 20, 2022, Yasonna said the Ministry of Law and Human Rights had taken a number of steps to make it easier for IP protection in Indonesia. One of them is the digitization of IP services.
