Thank you for reaching out to the list and I hope we can help. I definitely
think we should put our heads together on this!
One thing that I am struggling to understand is the following: "unmask IP
addresses of websites that are user-generated". What is the current system?
Who and under which circumstances can unmask IP addresses right now? Why
would it in this case only target user-generated sites and not all sites
hosting (allegedly) illegal activities?
Generally there are two strategies: Either you try to stop the entire
law/paragraph or to get an exception for what you care. Stopping a
paragraph could also mean replacing it with something else.
Has there been some concrete event that triggered the Ministry to move in
Thank you again and sorry for asking more questions right now than I have
answers for you!

In November 2020, Indonesian Ministry of ICT passed a new regulation (Permenkominfo
on "Private Electronic System''. Among others, the regulation would allow
the government to force ISPs and basically any web operator to unmask IP
addresses of websites that are user-generated for a very broad set of
reasons, including but not limited to "inflammatory contents" and "public
disorder". The Electronic Frontier Foundation has discussed this new
regulation at length here
At Indonesian Wikipedia village pump
we concluded that this regulation will invariably make Wikimedia projects
and affiliates in Indonesia subject to it. We are very concerned about the
possibility of a broad interpretation of this regulation by the government
and its effect on Wikimedia projects here, especially observing the increasingly
of the current government on Internet and data policy.
We would very much welcome suggestions, warning tales, and/or practical
experiences that we could learn in anticipating this regulation's incoming
