JAKARTA (JP): The decision of San Francisco-based Levi Strauss & Co., the manufacturer of Levi's and Dockers brand clothing, to stop its contract with the Jakarta-based PT Duta Busana Danastri garment factory has drawn various reactions from a number of experts here. 

Frans Hendra Winarta, a noted lawyer, praised the action as proving that an American company can have a commitment to establishing workers' rights despite a profit-oriented policy. "It will set a good precedent."
