The aim of the study is to describe the protection of private rights in the context of press freedom. How justice earned by someone who has experienced suffering or disadvantage over a press coverage is the main goal to be formulated. In fact, there have been many civil suits filed by parties who feel their reputation is defined by a preaching, whereas the press actually obtains protection on the basis of human rights and its function as the fourth pillar of democracy. The paradigm of justice to be studied comes from the settlement of a press dispute, between the right of reply or a lawsuit directly to a civil court. This study tries to make comparisons based on the era of government that occurred in Indonesia.
