TRO for Cybercrime Law

Philippines still has its democracy working. The Supreme Court issued a Temporary Restraining Order for the newly passed Cyber Crime Law. The highest court of the land finally considering the details and provisions of the new law.

I am personally glad about the TRO, because the Supreme Court of the Philippines must ensure that all our basic rights are not curtailed. As I mentioned in my last post (CLICK HERE), it's one way of suppressing most people from expressing their opinion to anything or even to anyone. 

I understand that we must be responsible for anything we say, but that doesn't mean that we create a montruous law to prevent us from trying to express what we feel. If someone said something libelous to you, I don't think Cyber Crime Law help us settle things or even clear our names and reputations. 

We can't stop people from talking about us if the issue talked about is evident on what we do. If we're being bashed on Facebook, then  let's use our own  Facebook Wall and shout to the world and redeem ourselves. If you don't want to hear the bashing, then let's turn off our social network accounts. That's so simple! No drama! 
These are the Senators who voted for the RA 10175 authored by Sen. Edgardo Angara. Click HERE for details.
We don't have to include libel on Cyber Crime Law. That's the point I am trying to make. This is it for now. Let's see how many days TRO can hold this Cyber Crime Law. Wanna be aware of the provisions in questions and subject to amendments? Click HERE.

  2. you are right....kung ayaw makabasa ng mga salita na hindi maganda ay close ang account.........katulad ng kay Sharon Cuneta masyadong pinapatulan ang mga nagsasalita laban sa kanya....kung hindi niya basahin o close account na lang ay ayos pa...hindi siya mairita....

  5. We actually operate in the same idea. This Cybercrime Prevention Act is just an echo of so many laws against libel, plagiarism, etc. that are already in place. I hope our lawmakers to spend more time on worthy causes. Meron din akong post about it. It was nice stopping by!

  8. repasuhan nga muna nila dapat.. hindi yung nagmamadali sila.. hindi kasi nila gaanong nauunawaan ang ilang mga implications especially sa mga madalas mag-internet.

  18. hopefully, they get to revisit the law and amend those that seem to take away the rights of people for freedom of speech. i am surprised we still do not have a cyber law there, since it would help a lot i believe in attracting investors to our country when they can trust that sensitive data are protected and protection from identity theft, etc. however, it should not go beyond the rights of people to express their thoughts.
