I dont really have a problem with Pnoy,my biggest issue is with senators,congresspeople,and presidents who are relatives,sons or daughters of other goverment officials.Too much family politics and sense of entitlement in the philippines.There are many aspects I like with this law and is long overdue.However,the police need address real crimes that is happening everywhere in all provinces starting with corruption even at the local tranfer ownership of a car level.The goverment does not even have the recources to combat this at a proficient level.It takes all day sometimes even 2 days to do what it takes 10 minutes in canada,unless you bribe of course.
no... I don't think this law is the same in US and Other countries. I was in US from 2003-2011. Its not the same.This US law, while securing and regulating the use of internet, still protects it's constittion and its Citizens rights and freedom.This one on the other hand seems like a control over the internet. It is not far, that Filipinos will start condemming this new law. I don't see anything about protecting our(Filipinos) constitutional rights and freedom except for few. I don't think Filipinos will like most of this new law. It will be very interestiing to see how this new law will unfold and affect filipinos with their rights of privacy, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and other things related to this.on the other hand, we all know who already violated this new law in the public and national level. Plagarize anyone?
Parang nasa communist country na tayo gaya ng China. Buti pa i-embrace na natin ang communism kung ganun.
nasa china ako ngayon kahit me firewal sila nakakalusot ako sa vpn. naka yuotube and face book ako.
how about strengthening real criminal laws? kung saan kakatakutan ng mga holdaper, magnanakaw sa gobyerno, mamatay tao, skalawag na pulis etc?? kelangan ba natin talaga ito? or kakayanin ba natin ito? umiral na naman kayabangan natin na sasabay sa cyber laws ng western countries.eh simpleng krimen na halos mag iwan na ng resume ang mga masasamang elemento sa lugar ng krimen eh hindi pa masolve ng kapulisan, ganyang cyber laws pa tututukan nila??
hey this new law came suddenly out of nowhere. The only thing i find relevant here is fighting child pornography. But wait a minute, there's already an existing law against child porn. Whatcha gonna do with 50 million? thats a lot of cold cash to pay hackers track down other hackers. Wish the lawmakers would give a bit more attention to existing laws like those against inhumane treatment to animals, so that the rest of the world would somehow see filipinos as less barbaric. Or whatever happened to that law they're trying to pass to put more bicycle lanes in the Philippines?
Well that's to be expected. By misuse, I would guess using equipment (i.e DSL Modems, canopy receivers, cable box etc ... ) to be modified to bypass the service security and copy protection, or modding them above it service capacity. This would be a problem, since modding is considered misuse of a device.But even so, with a mere 50M budget, there's little these law can do in this country. It will only go to benefit more into politicians. The government can't be proactive with this and there's another layer of bureaucracy, which further assures people that you are not affected by the changes.
HAHAHA,,,..papano kaya nila paparusahan an mga SPAMMERS....sige nga pakita nyo sa amin kung papano nyo huhulihin an mga spammers from RUSSIA/BOLIVIA/China...atc..etc...etc..SPAMMErs send millions of spammed (unsolicited) emails every specially in the public MAIL..or even in the private domain/email system....papano kaya hahabulin ng BATAS na ito kung marami mag ko complaint...
Just when the silent majority finally have a tool to express their concerns through social media, this new law will suppress their freedom of expression in the internet. I will not be suprised that social media will be filtered or banned in the near future due to sensitive issues.
Why? Libel is defined as a published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation; a written defamation. Unless the silent majority posts false statements, they will be in safe territory.
I can still post about the EPAL politicians as long as my posts are truthful.
This Kabataan Partylist Rep. Raymond Palatino does not seem to have a clear distinction between criticism and libel done online.CRITICISM is about evaluating, analyzing and judging one's word, deed, or way of living often with disapproval while LIBEL is about making injurious or defamatory statements, accusations or representations that are based on falsehoods, imagined reality or unfounded assumptions or guesses that are intended to damage the reputation of the target person.But I don't really believe that this Congressman is not honorable enough to understand the meaning of these two words although this is just an assumption. Could it be that this young Congressman is probably guilty of online libel as defined?
This LAW does not protect FILIPINO people from the intruders/cybercriminals but limiting FILIPINO people in the internet world.
Yeah right! our government is lacking of mechanism to pursue cybercrime, they are so many smart hackers and programmer that is so hard to detect where it came from. Before passing the law first they have to approve in the congress new employees and new facilities to create another government department to do this kind of job. Other countries they create the cybercrime department first then the law. Baliktad ang utak ng nasa politiko satin, anong saysay nyang law kung wala naman tayong kagamitan.
Nobody disputes the necessity to fight online crimes but the libel provision they deviously attached just reeks of online censorship and violation of freedom of speech. The government sees the internet and online social networks as a threat to their Corporate Controlled Mass Media's capability to sway public opinion in matters of great national importance.Hence, anyone's "opinion" on such matters could suddenly fall prey to the tyranny of semantics (as interpreted by the-powers-that-be), wasting precious time and money on court disputes instead of being able to tackle matters of grave importance in hand.Elitist critics would just shout "Noobs, lol. Great critics won't fall for such crepe", but then they condemn themselves to the ranks of the minority, leaving a sizable chunk of their would-be supporters at the mercy of those who wish to silence them. Hence, unable to mount enough numbers to pose as a threat against corruption among our highest authorities.It's so blatantly obvious that they're trying to divide and conquer, yet we are falling into their trap almost too beautifully while they wrap this poison under the guise of moral ascendancy.
