SC: No TRO on cyberlaw

Sotto libel provision is now in effect

By , , |


CYBER PEOPLE POWER A masked protester joins a big rally by different organizations composed of activists, journalists, netizens and bloggers in denouncing the online libel provision of the cybercrime law during a silent protest outside the Supreme Court on the eve of the law’s implementation. RAFFY LERMA

Netizens beware. Republic Act No. 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act, which among other things provides for blocking certain computer data and for longer prison terms for those found to have committed libel, is now in effect.

The cybercrime law becomes effective starting Wednesday because the Supreme Court has not issued a temporary restraining order  sought by various individuals and groups opposed to the new law.

“The Supreme Court did not issue a TRO in the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 petitions which are up for further study,” said Ma. Victoria Gleoresty Guerra, acting chief of the high tribunal’s public information office.

The justices held their regular full court session Tuesday with 10 justices in attendance. Guerra said four justices were absent—Diosdado Peralta, Lucas Bersamin and Mariano del Castillo were attending a conference in Croatia, while Roberto Abad was on personal leave.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said RA 10175 would take effect even if it did not have implementing rules and regulations (IRR).

“Effectivity of that law is not conditioned upon the adoption of the IRR and the setting up of the Office of Cybercrime. No legal impediment for the law’s implementation, given the absence of a TRO or injunction,” she said in a text message to reporters.

Seven petitions have been filed in the high court questioning the constitutionality of several provisions of the new law and asking it to issue a TRO.

The law raises to more than 14 years in prison the cumulative penalties for a single act of online libel. It also guarantees imprisonment as the accused is ineligible for probation.

Most disturbing

Fr. Joaquin Bernas, a lawyer, described as “most disturbing to many”  Section 19, which says: “When  computer data [are] prima facie  is found to be in violation of the provisions of this Act, the DOJ [Department of Justice] shall issue an order to restrict or block access to such computer data.”

The petitions were filed by Sen. Teofisto Guingona III, Alab ng Mamamahayag party-list group, businessman Louis Biraogo, a group led by lawyer Harry Roque and columnist Ellen Tordesillas, cyberlaw experts led by lawyer Jose Jesus Disini, a group led by Representatives Raymond Palatino of Kabataan and Antonio Tinio of ACT Teachers, and another group led by Bagong Alyansang Makabayan and National Artist for Literature Bienvenido Lumbera.

Guingona said he was disappointed that the Supreme Court deferred the hearing of the petitions.

“I respectfully ask the high tribunal to resolve the issues and act on the petitions immediately to prevent further harm to our cyberusers. The implementation of the law will take back our citizens to the Dark Ages where freedom of speech and expression was not recognized,” he said.

Guingona said he would continue to be with the citizens and Internet users in “this fight to ask the Supreme Court for a temporary restraining order and to finally repeal some vague and oppressive provisions of the newly enacted law.”

“Let me say this once again, the state has no right to gag its citizens and convict them for expressing their thoughts. The Philippines is a democratic country,” Guingona said.

“The Filipinos should never be left to cower on the sidelines—their thoughts and voices should not be shackled by fear and intimidation. The people should not be afraid of its own government,” he added.

Palatino also decried the Supreme Court’s inaction on the petitions. “To that we say, absence makes the Internet grow darker,” he said.

He was referring to online protests against the law, which consisted of blacking out websites and profile pictures in social networking sites.

Black placards

As the justices met, about 100 members of the Philippine Internet Freedom Alliance (Pifa), composed of different organizations of netizens and bloggers, staged a “silent protest” in front of the Supreme Court building on Padre Faura Street in Manila to show their opposition to the law and to call on the justices to issue a TRO.

With their mouths covered with black electrical tapes, the protesters carried plain black placards and a huge streamer printed with the words, “Stop Cyber Martial Law.”

“The cybercrime law is undemocratic and has negative implications on the right to free speech and privacy. The cybercrime law is testing our country—whether we’re truly a democracy or just a democracy on paper,” said Red Tani, president of Filipino Thinkers, a member of Pifa.

Ayeen Karunungan, council member of Dakila-Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism, said it was ironic that while the country was commemorating the 40th year after the declaration of martial law and crying “Never again!” the cybercrime law was signed.

“Real democracy allows the right to free speech as it is fundamental in people’s participation in governance. Enacting the law is the death of that right,” Karunungan said.

Pifa has called on people who could not attend street protests to do “an online blackout” of their websites and social media pages.

On Facebook, some members have replaced their profile pictures with black screens and logos protesting the cybercrime law. Others posted “shaded” comments to demonstrate their fears of possible government censorship of online activities.

Seeking amendments

 

As online protests intensified, lawmakers moved to amend the cybercrime law on the eve of its implementation.

Sen. Francis Escudero, who earlier admitted to missing the inclusion of libel in the new law when he voted in its favor, on Tuesday filed a bill seeking to repeal the provision.

“[With] today’s modern technology, the crime of libel does not only prove antiquated but to the contrary even overarching as a state tool to restrain freedom of speech,” Escudero said in his explanatory note in Senate Bill No. 3288.

Escudero said this was evident in the passage of the cybercrime law which broadened the coverage of the crime of libel to include even those with the use of “computer system or other similar means that may be devised in the future.”

“This must never be countenanced if only to remain consistent with the constitutionally prescribed freedom of the press,” Escudero said.

Online petitions

The delay in the high court’s  decision on the petitions will give other groups an opportunity to file a similar suit.

Pifa said it would file its petition against RA 10175 on Monday.

The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines said it would file a separate case. It posted its petition online (http://www.nujp.org/no-to-ra10175/) to solicit signatures from individuals and organizations.

Kabataan party-list group set up an online petition (http://www.change.org/petitions/junk-the-cybercrime-prevention-law) calling on President Aquino, Congress and the Supreme Court to junk the law. It had gathered 36,000 signatures as of 4 p.m. Tuesday.

In the House of Representatives, Bayan Muna Rep. Teodoro Casiño and Palatino filed a bill also seeking to repeal several provisions of the cybercrime law.

One degree higher

Casiño said one of the threats in the new law came from Section 6, which says that all offenses defined under the Revised Penal Code (RPC) and special laws, such as libel, committed through information and communication technologies, shall be charged with a penalty one degree higher than that provided in the code.

“By imposing a penalty one degree higher than what had been stated in the RPC on libel, longer prison terms are guaranteed for persons found to have published or posted material containing libelous remarks online,” Casiño and Palatino said in the explanatory note.

The lawmakers also assailed the provision that allowed government agencies to disclose, preserve, search, seize and destroy computer data.

The law, they further said, would have a “chilling impact” on bloggers, online journalists and other Internet users because websites could be taken down without due process.

Casiño said amending the law would bring it back to its original intention of combating websites on child pornography, data and identity theft, and other Internet scams.

One of the House authors of the law, Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara, said he was open to discussions about amending the measure. He said he was amenable to making penalties for libel civil rather than criminal.

    I am in a dilemma on whether the Supreme Court is a PNoy Court or an independent one. The Supreme Court is fully aware that by not issuing the TRO desired by the majority of the people it would be the administration who will take the brunt of the people’s contempt or wrath. It may not be too obvious but this another show of the Supreme Court’s contempt to their head. Para bang sinasabi lang ng SC na inumpisahan ninyo tapusin niyo. Huwag ninyo kaming madaliin dahil kami dito ay cool na cool lang sa mga pangyayari.

      I agree.. I will support a “probationary” period for the “libel clause’s” implementation to see its “effectiveness” or “failure”.

      For the overall Anti Cybercrime Bill we can enforce it immediately, the libel clause is vague anyways so trying it for a limited time (like 3 months) would suffice..

      Altho we all know another deliberation for appeals against it is set next week.. so we have a whole 1 week to see its “enforcement”.

    its funny how people reacted to a certain provision in cyberlaw that said to curtail the freedom to express, even headlining today, but adamant on saying that “innocence of Muslims” should not be shown or heard because it hurts the feeling of others

    the same thing happening in syria and nigeria where tens and thousands of muslims and christian are killed but the rest of the muslims all over the world thinks that a stupid film is more worthy of their anger and frustration and chose to ignore the former

    there goes muslim logic for all of you

    i thought the country is moving forward. we support the nation in a way that we criticize those we found not advantageous for the country and we also fight for those who said something wrong about the country but we also praise for the country’s success and amplify it. And now, i neither want to do the same. I don’t want to participate anymore. I may be alone but I am thinking of leaving the country for good. there was once glimpse of hope but now I don’t think so…this country is not for us.

    Again.. the libel clause can be amended or removed so no worries my fellow countrymen, those who signed the law themselves are open to it (I dunno about Nador).. so maybe all those against the libel clause’ can do is wait for a while and be patient until tuesday next week..

    if a TRO is released I only hoped its for the libel clause only and not the overall Cybercrime law..

    Why include the “libel” as part of the cybercrime law (section 4(c)4.

    Does it mean we can no longer make any defamatory comment regarding anyone especially politicians, though we may be speaking the truth. Our libel law is very strict- then our freedom to comment regarding the corrupt practices of politicians is now suppressed?

Marcos for elementary school children, etc. 
        All you see now are politicians pasting their faces on newspapers with their family members running for political office too. I understand why Filipinos want to escape the Philippines.

    They should have created the law against Plagiarism instead for a lot of Senators is ignorant about it.

    And passed the bill of Cybercrime Law with the last minute insertion of “Libel Clause”.

    Its just hillarious to hear from one Senator saying: He regret he voted for it.

    Why regret – now regret for its election time for sure you did not study and think about it and you just went with the flow.

    I hope the filipino people should think hard not to vote for these Senators whether they are under President Aquino – LP Banners.

    Dynasty should end – don’t vote for those candidate.

  • arthur1410

    For many years, I, along with many more netizens,  posted nasty comments against perceived corrupt officials to wake the up. Then, when Pnoy filed his candidacy as president and won thereafter, we heaved a sigh of relief that finally, the last chance of this nation to rise from the grave has taken roots.
    But lo and behold, it appears, it is not going to be so, not in my lifetime, not in the next 100 years, I believe.
    When you look at the present senatorial, congressional and local candidates, except for few notable young and educated candidates who are well-bred, prim and proper, with character and oozing with potentials, most candidates are recycled corrupt politicians, alleged killer and smuggler, even convicted plunderer.
    The sad part is, they can win because the filipino voters are gullible, stupid and dumb. Where will that lead this nation to?
    Then, an alleged plagiarist is alleged to have inserted a provision that made cyber libel a crime. Pnoy, who is expected to fight for freedom of speech for having a father killed fighting that menace signed the cyber crime law, with a smile in his face, a few days before martial law anniversary. 
    The people were up in arms, 7 petitions were raised in SC, but lo and behold (again), SC did nothing, so different when EO#1, TRO on GMA’s travel, etc were issued in a huff. 
    Now the law is in effect. and effectively, denying the people’s right to express opinions on what they read in the papers, seen on TV and heard on radio.      
    I give up. Is this a SC who will render judgment like this for the next 18 years?
    I will just wait for my daughter, the only remaining member of my family who is still in the Philippines to migrate permanently here in the US, then, I will disengage totally. No more TFC, no more GMA 7, no more phil news in internet. In short, No more Philippines. 
    Some bloggers may sneer at me but I don’t care. I am fed up and hopeless about this country, which is the opposite of how I feel few years ago.

    • blowcoldblowhot

      What can you say about Pnoy now? Are you happy?

    • cogito728sum

      No arthur, you cannot do that and you must not do that.  If you did, you would be condemning yourself to perpetual anguish worst than an Enrile, vainly trying to extricate that demon in his head reminding him every hour of his remaining troubled life of the evils he did during that dark era of martial law.  And what will you do?  Publish an embellished memoir to fool yourself that you can wash your guilt in printing lies?  No my friend.  The Philippines will never leave you as it has not left me for almost four decades now.  Every morning you see your face in the mirror, there’s the Philippines.  Every time you scream “aray” when you hurt, there’s the reminder of who you are, a Filipino.  No my friend, please don’t make me cry for simply we can’t forget the Philippines.

      You see arthur, we are not different than the salmon.  Even after a few years of traversing the vastness of the sea, it always go back to the place it was spawned to die, a natural instinct that does not exclude us humans.

      The best thing we can do is not give up.  Let’s continue the fight against these crooked politicos, including this president we initially supported and continue to support, if need be.  But lets not throw in the towel.  I, personally, still believe in the innate goodness of the Filipino and I consider this dark episode in the history of our country as a nightmare from which we should wake up.  Half a century ago, the political landscape was not weeded like this.  So we can still win, believe you me.  These weeds grew because we did not apply weed killer on the lawn.  But its not too late as yet.

      In the meantime, lets exhort fellow bloggers to restrain themselves and be more discreet in our criticism.  If we remain constructive in our criticisms, this law will not live long.  Good luck!

      • arthur1410

        Cogito,
        when the news about Jim Paredes saying few years that he gave up on the philippines, I sneered at him, saying to myself- “Jim, you may have given up,but  the Philippines did not give up on you. Our forefathers fought for nearly hundred years fighting for freedom against foreign invaders and won, our fathers and grandfathers fought the japanese for 4 years and won.” So I sneered at him. We will win, I told to myself.

        During EDSA 1, we won over dictatorships. Few years later, the accomplices of the dictator returned and are/were holding sensitive posts in the government and it was deja vu all over again.

        Then the worst came. a small lady was alleged to have led in pillaging the nation of its wealth and dignity. She was even elected as congresswoman. Then, 2 years after the son of a hero and an icon of democracy became president, there was a slight improvement but just the same, it was as if nothing positive is happening. He even presided in stifling the rights of the people to express its grievances with this cyber  crime law. The last bulwark of democracy, the SC, seems to be hiding, because by keeping this cyber crime alive, the members are also protected against criticism.

        What I see today are all compromises, that’s all.

        The difference between our fight today over our forefathers’ fight is the enemy. Our forefathers fought foreign enemies in our land with fellow filipinos fighting side by side with our forefathers, while today, we are fighting fellow filipinos who are aided with gold, goons and laws they created to protect them. 

        There lies the rub, Cogito. How can we fight a fellow filipino in a boxing arena when the judges are his friends and relatives and the referee is a brother or a sister or son or daughter? Please answer me Cogito? It appears to me then that Jim Paredes is correct after all.

      • cogito728sum

        No my friend, that Jim Paredes was wrong and you’re correct.  But before I go on further, let me refer you to a post by my mi amici, that man whose madness is a constant source of laughter for me, elsewhere wherein he laid out some noble suggestions on what a citizen should do.  You’ll certainly appreciate it, full of wisdom.

        Now my answer to your despair which I sincerely share.  You see my friend, an anthropologist whose name escape me at the moment, believes, and I don’t think I can disagree with him, that culture changes.  Just recall the days after the war which is only what a couple of generations ago? Because our forebears then were educated, not so much academically but in practical terms, life was less complicated but orderly.  The wisdoms they imparted to us, which we kept at heart, enabled us to live a generally simple but honourable existence.  We did not possess the insatiable greed and acquisitiveness of modern day compatriots.

        Our teachers then did were not MA on this, Ph. D. on that braggarts, but they taught their students proper and practical education.  Today, we send our children to prestigious exclusive schools not mainly for education but more for the preservation of family status and of course for ensuring their economic survival.  Thus, we see atty. Joe Blow with a master’s degree at Harvard Law, or Jane Doe with a PH. D in economics from Wharton or London  but what happens next?  They know that they can dazzle us with their foreign MAs and PH.Ds and the first thing they do, they become more acquisitive and amass more wealth at the expense of our natural environment and the general well-being of the people they swore to serve.

        So what do we do?  This may seem paradoxical but the only solution left in the horizon is to educate our ignorant and downtrodden compatriots so this vicious cycle of exploitation does not perpetuate. For a start, lets promote the growth of a Penaflorida with his kareton library to teach the young the rudiments of citizenship.  Lets support and increase the tribe of a Meloto whose sincere and bonafide public service should be the envy of every politician.  If we can accomplish these, in a generation from now, our cultural make up would certainly change for the better. We’ll have communities whose virtues are reflections of the enlightened soul of each individual citizen.  Afterall, as you may have insinuated rightly our worst enemy is ourselves.

    No cause for alarm.

    Until the Implementing Rules and Regulations are published by the DOJ in the Official Gazette for a specific period required by our Constitution, no one can be arrested and prosecuted for any violation of RA 10175 because the legal maxim that “Ignorance of the law excuses no one from compliance therewith” could not be applied. The publication of the IRR is a condition precedent or a must. Personally, I believe na pang “golpe de gulat” lang yang RA 10175 to protect themselves from internet attacks specially those who are running with heavy baggage prior to the senatorial election. Ultimately they will amend, decriminalize, or leave it as it is without any IRR. A law which has no Implementing Rules and Regulations is a toothless law and practically inutile.

    • spearheads

      This maybe one of the reasons why the Supreme Court deemed it wise not issue a TRO because there is no danger of “irreparable injury” to the citizens. Be that as it may, the SC’s decision only fans the flames of hate by the people.

      • drefaura

        Herc, I remember pushing for implementation of the no withholding tax on minimum wage earners a while back, and that was a little over year since they introduced the amendment to the Income Tax Code. Every time I opened my mouth (more like the pen), BIR still continued to withhold and I was told the IRR is not finished yet, so they could not implement the amended tax code.

        This time, it is the opposite, eh?  They say they could implement RA10175 without the IRR, notwithstanding the language of the Constitution as you so aptly described it.

        I wonder how many standards there are that they are following.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/RDDM5UQ45HLPPKM66KYEBCMTCE dave

      I read another article the de Lima qouted no IRR is necessary to implement the law…does that constitute libel case for the Secretary?

      • spearheads

        Panakot lang yang kay Delima at Pimentel. Let them arrest and prosecute an offender and we’ll see if they can do it. By then the SC can issue a TRO because there will be a justiceable controversy already.

    • RiverHorse

      so how would we categorize senator pimentel’s opinion which caused all the panic and misinformation??? libel has always been a crime bakit ngayon lang nagrereact mga tao???

      • spearheads

        You categorize it as plain threat or alarm to the people. Bar topnotcher as he is, Pimentel knows that the law is not self-executory. How can it be self-executory when there is a particular provision creating a Commission to oversee the implementation of the law and providing funds therefor? Di ka na kayo nasanay dyan kay De Lima, she is the leading illegal luminary of PNoy, di ba?

  • wawa2172

    I haven’t read any portion of the cyber law yet but it has already put some restriction to whatever I can constructively do in the network. While senators and congressmen are well protected when they do privileges speeches in the hall of congress the nitizens  are now prevented to say anything against whatever we feel as irregular or illegal. While I respect the SC, not listening to the request of many sectors of the society to put the newly signed law in hold thru a temporary restraining order is disturbing. It has issued TRO in less important issues it did not give a chance to petitioner against the cyber law. Is it because internet did cause harassment to the SC when CJ Corona was impeached? Now were in dark ages where freedom of expression is a taboo. It is sad that I may no longer be able to oppose or make a negative comment on a person specifically politicians afraid of being sued in court. This means we can no longer accused a politician corrupt  baka makasuhan ako nang libel.

  • spearheads

    Since there is no published Implementing Rules and Regulations yet, aside from the fact that there is no danger of “irreparable injury” to the citizens, there is no justiceable controversy yet insofar as the Supreme Court is concerned. That is why they are waiting for further developments. Meanwhile, the law sanitized the vultures who are masquerading as senatorial candidates because of the fearsome atmosphere created upon the netizens who do not understand any of these legal gobbledygooks.

    If the Anti-Cyber Reporting of Evils in the Government is Criminalized as provided for in RA NO. 10175, we will not be able to report the evils of Former Fake President Macapagal Arroyo and Former President Marcos on their treacherous collaboration with the chinese and the north americans of the United States to let them take over possession of our: territories; resources; and direction of development of our political, economic, defense and educational systems. This has developed an Alienation Impotency Dependency Syndrome in our nation. We will not be able to report the evils of the Cojuancos on how they massacred our brother filipinos in Mendiola and Hacienda Luisita to perpetuate their possession of our lands thru subtle means. We filipinos would only continue to suffer yet not be able to be aware of what evil has crept on and gripped our nation that has caused our sufferings. The children of our children if by that time our nation has not yet become extinct, will continue to suffer without knowing the cause of their sufferings. Therefore they will never have the option to recover from their sufferings.

    I seriously think that this is just a ploy for the politicians so they can have something to oppose and attain fame as election time draws near. It’s pretty obvious that the law is intentionally flawed so someone or some political groups would supposedly save them from it. Way to go in playing Good Cop Bad Cop.

    • RiverHorse

      there is actually nothing wrong with the law, only the interpretation of a re-electionist senator made it look flawed. a warrant is still necessary to conduct surveillance and evidence gathering.

      • Earl_Jan_Competente

        Apparently there’s a section in it that authorizes the police to collect real time data without any court order or warrant. If it would be implemented in its full effect some people would think twice before posting anything online, especially against the government or any political figure. Now that’s essentially taking away our freedom of speech.

     Sometimes i wonder that even if this law is passed, how will they implement it? Our country is known for having so many laws but so weak in implementation. Our younger generations are far more smarter in computers than our policemen.

    • TAMBULI

      That is really true…they don’t have the capability to prosecute those people who violated the law.Its like the “Clean Air Act Law”…they implemented it in one week then abandon it later…hehehhehe.so sad.

      • SoulEdge

        @Tambuli, i beg to disagree. imagine if the likes of Marcoses or Arroyos is presiding again in the future. I  hope now you will realize the implication. 

  • MNLFoodcritic

    Everyone shouldn’t be surprised that Pnoy quickly signed this into law. Remember when Pnoy was still campaigning for president, his campaign people always pre-screened every question directed at him. This president hates criticism. Thus don’t be surprised he signed this law as quick as a wink.

    They passed this bill and got it signed into law in record time. Whatever happened to the RH Bill? It just went MIA like the salvage victims of Marcos. After all the posturing and threats between the Church and the government, nothing has been heard about it. Looks like PNoy and the Church dropped it like a newborn gazelle. How can I, as a citizen, be convinced the country is not going to the dogs when the government’s ADHD is uncontrollable? On second thought, it would be an insult to dogs if they inherited this wretched nation with it’s incurable dynastic leaders who only think of themselves.

    As feared by critics, the appointment of Sereno as CJ would turn the SC to a servile group of magistrates of P-Noy’s.  Now we are seeing it coming true when the SC did not issue the TRO to stop the draconian cyberlaw from taking effect. The SC’s flimsy excuse  that it need to study further the cyberlaw shows either these justices don’t have the constitution in their fingertips or they are being cowered by P-Noy that they lost their independence to be SC justices. In either case, these justices have lost their impartiality or are incompetent. They should step down from their positions.

    The freedom of information bill as well as the RH bill are of more importance, ditto with discussions about sin tax.  So why did this bill become law faster than the speed of light?  Who’s afraid of getting criticized?

    By signing the Cyber Law, P-Noy has, by a stroke of his pen, undo everything his death father and mother had so long caressed and built up — a free country for the Filipinos. Everything his father and mother had fought for during their lifetime and believed in has been reduced to nothing because of their unthinking son who signed a law giving the death toll to our civil liberties and rights to privacy and expression. If they  were still alive today, they would have wished he had not born into this world — a disgrace to the family name Aquino.

So ask the bar topnotcher Pimentel and DOJ’s De Lima how could they implement the law without the IRR when RA 10175 specifically designates the Commission on Cyber Crime such powers and functions? Pwede bang ah basta basta? Pwede bang manghuli muna tsaka na lang yong IRR at i-retroact na lang yong effect ng IRR, pwede ba yon? Ano yan, ex post facto law or bill of attainder?  Anong resulta kundi Martial Rule ang dating which this two luminaries allegedly abhor.

    Ninoy and Cory are turning over in their graves. Our forefathers who fought for the very freedom this bill threatens to stifle are cursing from the afterlife. Chairman Mao, Adolf Hitler, and Kim Il-Sung are congratulating Ferdinand Marcos for a job well done – you have planted your sleeper seeds well.

May ipapakain ba ang gobyerno sa sambayanang Pilipino na kanilang ikukulong? Kujng ang lahat ng internet users ay magpaputol na ng linya at inutil naman na ang magkaroon ka ng internet, bagsak ang negosyong internet at libu-libong mga tao na empleyado ng internet business. Paano naman kokontrolin ang pagtext? Bawat text message ba na naglabag sa batas na ito ay kakasuhan na ang texter? Maraming katanungang. Ang tingin ko pinagtatawanan tayo ng mga bansang merong freedom of speech. Ang sitwasyon na ito ay walang pinag-iba sa martial law ni Marcos. Pagmagsalita ka kontra sa gobyerno kulong ka. Ano ba talaga ang hidden agenda sa pagbaba ng batas na ito? Ito ba ay may connection sa darating na eleksyon para hindi magamit ang internet para mangampanya ang ordinaryong Pilipino para sa mga mga napupusuan nilang mga kandidato at mangampanya na huwag botohan ang mga nakakasukang mga pulitiko? Dapat ipaliwanag ng mga bumoto sa batas na ito ang kanilang tunay na dahilan. Sino ba ang nagsulong ng batas na ito? Yun bang isang mambabatas na guilty sa plagiarism?

    We ordinary citizens and taxpayers  Freedom of Speech and Expression is/are  the only weapon(s) that we have  against the mostly humongously corrupt government leaders, officials  and functionaries and yet the state wants to take this most important freedom away from us? Don’t these hypocrites, called lawmakers,  have the guts to declare Martial Law in our face instead of an undeclared one masquerading as a law, the oppressive Anti Cybercrime Law? Also, what can we expect from another so-called co-equal branch of government, the Supreme Court? But to dilly-dally as well and will not issue a TRO so unlike when the unlamented GMA petitioned it for a TRO and was issued faster than a speeding bullet ala-Superman because some members, mostly appointed by the previous regime,  were also exposed as of being dubious characters as well. Filipinos should not let this very important freedom of every self-respecting citizen be taken away from by these creatures whose huge salaries, CDFs, PDAFs and perks  are being paid by us taxpayers of this FORMER democratic republic.

      Kabayan, ano ba naman ang mapapala mo sa isang senador na valedictorian sa wanbol U kung hindi katangahan lang, at dinala pa mula sa iskul bukol compound to senate?
      iyong mga kasama na senatoriable in 2013 election, nagsipirma din tulad in angara (anak niya ang kandidato), villar (asawa niya kandidato), honasan, pimentel, escudero. seguro para kung may kapalpakan sila, hindi na sila aatakehin ng mga tao

    TO ANTHONY CATALAN: Civil protection should not result to injustice. the fact that this law contains provisions which are unjust to the people means that it should be revised or amended to make it perfect. yun imperfection ng law na ito if mai-apply e mag reresulta sa injustice at curtailing of freedom. Yun provisions nya na tama e ok naman i-apply sa mga tao. if magkamali ka sa freedom of speech mo now e ok ba ikaw na una namin iapakulong tutal ok naman sa iyo ito e?

    One of the House authors of the law, Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara,
    said he was open to discussions about amending the measure. He said he
    was amenable to making penalties for libel civil rather than criminal. 
    – hwag iboto.

    Sen. Francis Escudero, who earlier admitted to missing the inclusion of
    libel in the new law when he voted in its favor, on Tuesday filed a bill
    seeking to repeal the provision.

    • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

      Why screw it? Every freedom comes with responsibility, so should it be for cyberfreedom. The US is just beginning to come to terms with the perils of aboslute cyberfreedom in the aftermath of the global outcry against the anti-Islam film produced and dubbed in the US. The new law encourages self-moderation and self-discipline. There’s no curtailment of any freedom. And this is not just semantics.

      • Karabukov

        “There’s no curtailment of any freedom.”

        You are blind. This is where it begins.

        The day the U.S. yields with a legislation that would curtail freedom of speech will be the day democracy has died.

      • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

        But . . . but . . . but . . . you know it’s all just semantics. Truth is, the new law is introducing the freedom of self-moderation which we’ve never had before. This might just give us the shot in the arm in order to catch up with our neighbors who have not always been as free but definitely more advanced economically.

      • Karabukov

        It’s all semantics?  You are not making sense. The new law is introducing the “freedom of self-moderation.” What is this? An oxymoron? “Which we’ve never had before.” Obviously you are young enough not to have lived before and during martial law.

        “This might just give us the shot in the arm in order to catch up with our neighbors who have not always been as free but definitely more advanced economically.”  Who gave you the idea that curtailing freedom will translate to economic progress? Your non-sequitur amazes me.

      • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

        And how do you prove your assumption that unfettered and unlimited freedom will translate to economic progress?

      • Karabukov

        Did I say that? Do you know the fallacy of non sequitur? It means it does not follow. I did not say that the opposite is correct.  What it means is that there is no direct correlation. You are making the assumption, not I.

      • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

        Then thanks for supporting the Cybercrime Law.

      • Karabukov

        When you run out of arguments it is not good form to insist on your opinion, and even worse, because it betrays your lack of understanding of logic, to say that because I appear to disagree with the opposite of what you’re saying you now naively (meaning you actually believe what you are saying) or cynically (meaning you don’t believe what you are saying but you say it anyway for spite) conclude that I agree with you. I’m sorry if that is too convoluted for you to understand, so I’ll just attribute your last reply to immaturity.

        But just for the record: I am against the Anti-cybercrime law, particularly its libel provisions and its penalties, because any curtailment to freedom of speech can be used to silence critics and oppress those who hold minority views. It is a slippery slope that will lead to more authoritarianism, which is already evident in your fallacious reasoning that the latter will lead to economic progress.

        But, as Voltaire said, “I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

      • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

        Wow! That was deep. I prefer not to complicate issues so I steer away from convoluted abstractions. The way I see it, you just disagree with criminalizing dishonesty, injurious lying and fraud in the virtual world. But you also have to admit that libelous statements in the cyberworld can go a long way to inflict damage on a person, a community, a society or a country in real life. You can resort to and indulge in denialism in virtual reality but it doesn’t make you right.

      • Karabukov

        See up-thread.

      • Karabukov

        I’ll indulge you.

        Yes I disagree with criminalizing dishonesty. A dishonest person is not a criminal. Yet. Once you have evidence that a person did a dishonest act, then you can charge him/her accordingly. When Pedro says you’re good-looking and the mirror says you have evidence that he said so dishonestly go ahead and sue him and throw him into the dungeon for lying criminals!

        Ah injurious lying, Juan says you’re ugly but your mirror says you’re the fairest of them all. I can understand you’d be so upset and so injured you can sue him.

        Fraud is everywhere in the cyberworld my friend. Notably, the Nigerians (I guess that’s inflicting damage on a whole nation, my apologies, I meant some of them) who have made it into a billion dollar industry.  Go ye after these guys.

        Yes, yes, libelous statements inflict damage in the cyberworld. But we’re not in Manila anymore.

        Which is why this law will have a chilling effect on local newspapers and bloggers but will let the rest of the world go scot-free and libel everyone in the Philippines from abroad beyond the reach of this law. Good luck to you.

        What next? The China way.

      • Karabukov

        There, I rest my case. Nice talking to you. I see though that you have a good future as a bureaucrat. I am a PNoy supporter but I do hope he doesn’t think like you. I know you’re a good guy.

        Please don’t take it out on me. You’re against the new law but there’s nothing you can do about it. Appreciate the good that it will bring society. Admit for a minute we have too much freedom which are not being exercised responsibly. Besides, how many Filipino netizens do we have to make them matter as a political demographic? There are less than 3 out of every 10 Filipinos with internet access. Close to half of those are less than the voting age of 18. Those who can vote and who are overreacting against this new law are likely to fall within the age group of 18-30. The older demographics 31 and above are more likely to be concerned about mundane issues than lofty inedible ideals such as cyberfreedom. Simply put, with so few netizens and even fewer netizens of voting age and a not-so-reliable voter turnout, any social scientist or political pundit will not take this nano-minority of our society seriously. They just don’t have the numbers, just as some senatorial wannabes don’t have winnability. Nothing personal. It’s a numbers game.

        Out there in the real world, there are many who don’t give a squat about cyberfreedom and will continue to vote for my favorite noon-time show host.

    I hope we all actually read the law. The parts I hate the most refer to 4-c-1 cybersex and 4-c-4 libel. Some parts of this law are actually good. For example, the provisions against data interception can actually protect us from both private crooks and the government.

    I cannot find specific penalties against 4-c-1 and 4-c-4 that worry me. The problem here is we do have a law against libel, so how do we translate that on the internet? I think the libel law itself is highly debatable and its application should be very conservative as not to trample on freedom of expression.

    Read the law. It’s quite short!

    • FernandoBusi

      The problem is a real cyber criminal cannot be tracked but an ordinary citizen is made vulnerable. What ever NBI or PNP says ang ordinaryong mamamayan lang ang kaya nilang hanapin through their methods. To track cyber criminals you need human assets, cyber sleuths in government are just using reverse ip techniques with a hook up to the database of ISPs to determine who you are. They cannot do that against an organized cycber crime group. 

      • muddygoose

        The lack of technical competency to enforce laws against cyber crime must be addressed, but that does not mean we should not have laws against cyber crime (libel is a different story). For example, the FBI can help us track down malicious (C&C) servers running in the country. With this law, our local law enforcement can legally perform a physical take down of these servers.

      • FernandoBusi

        they did not need this law they are just incompetent 

      • muddygoose

        Sorry, but you’re not making sense. Please read the law first.

      • FernandoBusi

        There are other laws that could address cyber crime. The problem is the police is do not know how to work things out.

      • muddygoose

        I understand your hatred for the lack of technical competency. It’s all over in our country, in both the public and private sectors, in law enforcement and even in criminal activity.

        But if you really look at the nature of the Internet and existing laws, there are some details that we need to legislate. For example, when is it reasonable for the government to intercept and read transmitted data? Or is legal for your ISP to check your internet activities for piracy?

Hangad po nitong patibayin pa ang disiplina ng ating mamamayan at palakasin ang pagiging makabayan ng taongbayan. Ang bagong batas na ito po ang siyang maghahatid sa atin tungo sa Daang Matuwid.

    Again..this law is redundant,toothless and subjectively bias.This is just a defense mechanism of a weaklings,a vicious mind maybe….in real world one needs to fight back,ascertain the truth and owned up responsibilities.
    As far as I knew,there are already laws that dealt crimes against oral defamation,censorship and other related acts.
    Even themselves(lawmakers and guardians of peace) are the most thickskin to violate the laws of the land.
    Again,this shows our government is running on roughshod,…hasty on most ill conceived decisions…otherwise,its should have been vetoed.

    I don’t have any big hopes that the Supreme Court will nullify this Law.  This Supreme Court is not known for its bravery.  It is too beholden to the appointing power.  Besides, the SC itself was shaken recently by the power of the social networks during the Corona impeachment.  I don’t think they want to keep that amount of power to the people.

    • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

      I agree with your opinion. The new law will only make us better by encouraging self-moderation and self-discipline. No country in Asia ever climbed out of poverty with our level of unlimited freedom and chaotic democracy. It is high time we question our assumptions and allow PNoy to lead us along the fabled Daang Matuwid. There should be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Or sunset. Basta, just like in the movies.

        As we eye

        The blue horizon’s bend

        Earth and sky

        Appear to meet and end

        But it’s merely an illusion

        Like your heart and mine

        There is no sweet conclusion
        I can see

        No matter how near you’ll be

        You’ll never belong to me

        But I can dream
        Can’t I

        Can’t I pretend

        That I’m locked in the bend

        Of your embrace

        For dreams

        Are just like wine

        And I am drunk

        With mine
        I’m aware

        My heart is a sad affair

        There’s much disillusion there

        But I can dream

        Can’t I
        Can’t I adore you

        Although we are oceans apart

        I can’t make you open your heart

        But I can dream
        Can’t I

        Can’t I pretend

        That I’m locked in the bend

        Of your embrace

        For dreams

        Are just like wine

        And I am drunk

        With mine

        I’m aware

        My heart is a sad affair

        There’s much disillusion
        there

    Is it really too late for PNoy to take back, erase, eliminate his

    Court.

    and hasty abolition of this mad, mad, mad, mad cyber law.
    It’s as easy as rubbing off PNoy’s signature on the darned document.

    • dragon27

      Filing a case with the Supreme Court is the proper way.

      If you want to demonstrate, demonstrate at Congress for them to repeal the law.

      The law can only be declared unconstitutional by the SC or abolished by another legislative act. The Executive could only implement laws passed by the Legislative, although initially, the President could exercise veto power. Once passed, it cannot be “recalled” by the Executive.

  • ARRANCAR

    now people you see who is at fault to all this problem who voted them into the senate!! election time is at hand we now have the power to choose who is not suited to be a senator how they seated on this bill and not read it thoroughly the cybercrime law when it was still been deliberating in the senate and house of congress. it shows how this senators and congressmen had been too busy minding their pork barrel how to spend and get it bigger, while the cybercrime law simply pass without debating its demerits and merits of passing this law!!! the senators and congressmen are clearly at fault and they are the real problem to this dilemma now we are facing.  what kind of senators and congressmen are this when it has become a law now they are complaining and wanting to amends its flaws WHAT A STUPID ACTION when this is already water under the bridge!!! are they politicking and making some show deliberately passing this law as to make some mass appeal that they are concerned to our freedom of speech and they will be elected into office again that they will do everything in their power to amend this law?? election maneuvering or strategy done by this administration to really make cybercrime a law and make the senatoriables of the administration make some pitch promising to amend the law once they are elected in the senate??!! making us look stupid to pick them the admin senatoriables and the UNA senator line-up also has the blame to fall on them too the congressmen and women!!!

    • calipso_2100

      Unfortonately, majority of the voters do not have internet access and probably do not even know about this Law.  So majority do not care about this law, it does not affect them.  So come election time, even if all netizens boycott them, they will still get re-elected.

        oh don’t get me wrong. i am for freedom of expression and i accept penalizing libel. what i am opposed to is imposing a prior restraint on freedom of expression especially if the grounds for the prior restraint is alleged offensive or blasphemous utterances. no to censorship ako.

        however, i think this issue now is a good lesson for a lot of people here who think nothing of imposing a prior restraint on other people’s expressions which they deem offensive. NOW they know how it feels like to be censored. after we fight this fight and hopefully win it, i hope people will be more tolerant and accepting of other’ people’s rights and freedoms even if they find them offensive.

      • marionics

        yes but it soooo easy to say that a guy is not respectful and therefore he should be suppressed. it is very subjective. some people are soooo easily offended or hurt by any perceived slight. so where do we draw the line? so anyone who feels offended can just suppress anyone by prior restraint.

        what i am just saying is that if you feel you are defamed then you can sue the guy where you can prove if the utterance is truly defamatory and the fact and amount of damages as well as the imposable penalty. it is only in court where it can be determined whether or not the freedom of expression has indeed been abused and should be suppressed, not just any other person or even govt. agency in an arbitrary manner. otherwise it would truly be a totalitarian regime.

  • Karabukov

    That the Supreme Court did not immediately issue a TRO will tell you something. I’m afraid the new Chief Justice has not been vetted carefully about her background and previous opinions, if any, on civil liberties.

    If the judiciary will not act, then the senators who should know enough what this type of curtailment to freedom of speech will do to the political life of this nation will have to act.

    We must demand an immediate statement from President Aquino what his stand is on this law, notwithstanding that he signed it into law without full appreciation of its implications on freedom of speech.

    What’s the controversy to all of these? Is my right being violated? No. Our rights and freedom are not absolute.Now, if in the course exercising your freedom and rights, you violated other’s right, then the law steps in. You cannot curse or badmouth me just because that is your right, or your freedom. You cannot write anything just because you have freedom of expression. Responsibility should be the norm of a civil society. Freedom, right, must be coupled by responsibility and self restraint.

    • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

And it’s all being measured by some system analytics specially designed and paid for by taxpayers’ money while you get paid tax free. And you get to thumb your nose at people from the outside looking in, like you Nebu5.

        We’ve come a long way from clay tablets Nebu5. Welcome to the digital age and knowledge economy 2.0 my friend. Some have it good. Some not as good. And this thing is only gonna get better as social media gets more specialized into different niches.

    freedom IS NOT ABSOLUTE!

    If you don’t have evidences on what you’re writing online especially if it is a negative comment then do not post your comment. If you have all the evidences on certain things and it is worth fighting for then go the web and tell the world about it. Simple as that. 

    I believe it is about time to discipline ourselves. I am a pro-PNOY! I like what he is doing now.

    The problem with us is that we like to enjoy the sky-is-the-limit setup. We write things against somebody not even thinking first its truthfulness. Some journalists are doing this for the sake of having something to publish. We have to stop this.

    We can say anything against our fellowmen. Yes, this is freedom because we are in a democratic country but mind you FREEDOM has limits.

    • mabyrik

      I am also a Pnoy admirer, even before he became a president. It’s true freedom is not absolute. But freedom of speech is guaranteed in our constitution. To suppress that freedom of speech is a violation of human rights and unconstitutional.
      I debated with so many netizens in this forum in defense of pnoy when he is correct but i will oppose him when he is incorrect based on my own judgment. This cyber law, which was signed by pnoy when it was least expected of him, having been a victim of oppression during martial law, the libel part in particular, is a transgression on my right and I vehemently oppose that.
      I am in cloud 9 every time pnoy’s rating soared, but this time, i will not be surprised if his popularity will dive. As a matter of fact, I welcome that. 
      A lot of pnoy’s supporters in this forum are up in arms against this new law and pnoy is going to be the shock absorber of that hatred.
      You can defend pnoy all you want but you can’t stop the netizens in raising their protests.

      Good thing you did not mention a specific journalist in your post. Under section 19, the government can potentially block access to this site based on your comment alone without a warrant or court order. This is what is wrong with the cyberlaw. It has nothing to do with freedom being absolute.

They introduced this PCOS voting that is even more easier for them to manipulate the result than the manual voting. This government have been preaching the matuwid na daan but lacking in  practicing it.This cybercrime law is a total violation to freedom of expression which is our last line of defence to our basic human rights ! This government is taking us wayback to the Spanish colonial period, even worst than the Marcos regime. This is like placing Dr. Jose RIzal in front of a firing squad for the second time!!

    Netizens have to be responsible about their online behavior. That said, I am against the anti-libel insertions in this new law. The Internet does not belong to any country and freedom of speech in this medium applies to all. The individual websites should be given the freedom to impose a code of conduct to all its users, to which users should agree to before using said websites.

    Say no to character assassination and cyberbullying on the web. But protect your right to say no by saying no to this cyberlaw as enacted.

DOES THE  INTERNET PROVIDE PUBLICITY ENOUGH TO MAKE A CITIZENS OPINION VOICED IN A BLOG OR TWITTER LIBEL? MAYBE, IF PEOPLE TRENDED IT, OTHERWISE IT IS JUST ANOTHER WEBSITE WITH LOW VIEWER HITS, AND THE TARGET OF THE ‘LIBEL’ WOULD BE STUPID IF S/HE DIRECTED INTERNET TRAFFIC/VIEWS TO THE SOURCE!!!!

    inclusion of an online libel clause in the new Anti-Cybercrime Law due
    to online sex scandals and intense cyberbullying against celebrities.
    Speaking to radio dzMM, Sotto said he asked the bill’s sponsor, Sen.

    to various scandals involving actresses Rhian Ramos, Janelle Manahan,

    Now the youth votes are going to make a difference. The cyberlaw has stirred up the “once-detached youth” from exercising their right of suffrage; to vote for the “qualified with a servant heart.” The Youth vote should come out and express what it wants for its future. Political trapos, the EPals, the dynasties, the stranglehold of the monied, the corrupt, with their private armies, should feel the wrath of the youth vote. If the youth will come out in massive numbers during election day, we will wake up to a renewed nation. FIRST, WE MUST MOBILIZE THE YOUTH TO REGISTER FOR 2013. SECOND, LET THE YOUTH COME OUT WITH ITS ENDORSED SLATE OF CANDIDATES. FINALLY, THE YOUTH MUST SURPRISE THE NATION WITH A MASSIVE TURNOUT ON ELECTION DAY. Thanks to Cyberlaw, the youth vote will come out. This is our nation, our country. We all have claim, same as those who attempted to shut us up and take that claim away from us.

    • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

      nakawan, you may have overestimated the importance of the youth vote who are against the new law. Simply put, only 3 out of every 10 Filipinos have internet access. To make matters worse, almost half of those who have internet access are below the voting age of 18. If the elections were a numbers game, which it is, numbers are not on the youth’s side.

      • nakawan

        still it’s no excuse not to mobilize them is it? correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t the major universities already allow computer access on campus?

      • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

        they’re perfectly well within their rights to mobilize and protest. but let’s also get real. the so-called netizens are not a significant political demographic to be reckoned with. yes they can make a lot of noise among those who are connected to the grid. but beyond that little circle of influence, they hardly reverberate. lofty but inedible ideals hardly resonate with people who earn barely enough to put food on the table. self-restraint and self-discipline coupled with robust laws will stand us in good stead in the long run.

      • nakawan

        maybe you’re right, but they still need to mobilize. you can shoot this down all day, but in the end you will have to act. you will obviously get no support from the non-computer users, so the best way is really to reach out to the youth. 3 in 10 is still a good number especially when the 7 are in the know of what the issue is through other media

And please, senator Escudero, that excuse can be taken as a testament to the kind of lawmakers we have right now. You “Yes” people ain’t getting any of my votes come election day.

    Anyway, I don’t see a point in following a questionable, poorly researched, possibly rehashed law so good luck with the contradicting legalities and all, implementing body.

    • Norodin

      This law fails common sense and is petty as it paints a broad stroke on libel from the internet. The definition of libel from the RPC that the law refers to is completely archaic when applied to the internet considering modern online behaviors and modern connectivity (trending, Memes, Groupthink, Crowdsourcing,  etc)

      Question: Does someone who writes a negative personal opinion towards another in a blog somewhere in the internet blog constitute Libel? Hmmm?
      Does a Meme, or any Negative Opinion piece that began to trend in the Internet constitute Libel?
      Does a person who vents his/her frustration towards a particular elected official through the internet in an impromptu and common manner (calling him inutil/tanga/ hindi nag-isip) in Twitter, A Youtube Channell, A Blog, immediately guilty of Libel? If that persons vent trends in the Internet, is that Public Libel? Hmmmm?

      • marionics

        basta go for the strict interpretation of the wording of the law as a defense-

        Art. 353. Definition of libel. — A libel is public and malicious imputation of a crime, or of a vice or defect, real or imaginary, or any act, omission, condition, status, or circumstance tending to cause the dishonor, discredit, or contempt of a natural or juridical person, or to blacken the memory of one who is dead.

      • Norodin

        ‘ Noynoy is a Monkey and an Idiot!!!’

        There I imputed a defect, status or condition, real or imaginary that casts contempt upon a Natural Person via the Internet!!!!

        I am guilty of Libel!!!! Huzzah!!!!

        Also my cousin is named Noynoy!!! So I might be casting libelous words at my cousin or the prez!!!!

        You can also do this in Youtube and Twitter!!! See how stupid and archaic the law is!!!

      • marionics

        wow! i’m soooo proud of you

      • Norodin

        OK. I couldn’t edit to add-on to my comment. So here is the other stuff I wanted to say after venting:

        the internet provides spontaneous and as well as thought-out commentary from people from all walks of life and any part of the world, initiating great insults, and also greater discussion. Common sense in the Internet simply dictates that you DONT FEED THE TROLL. Stop giving attention to something and it will stop trending and die at the bottom of the comments section. It also applies to real life: GET A THICKER SKIN IF YOU THINK YOU ARE A CELEBRITY OF SOME SORT (for the imbecilic officials who sit in office) the public owes you nothing, and you owe the public to do your job, get over your fame/celebrity reputation and WORK FOR THE PUBLIC!!!!

        F U GOVT 4 CRAFTING A LAW ThAT CENSORS A BASIC MODERN FREEDOM AND PROTECTS THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD TO FILE FOR SUPERFLUOUS LIBEL SUIT INSTEAD OF IMPROVING THE LIVES OF ORDINARY PEOPLE.

      Responsible social media user, you say? You may need to remember that you can be charged with libel regardless of whether what you say is true or not. That’s the catch right there. It’s not just about being accountable or being a good netizen. Libel or just plain offensiveness is in the eyes of the offended. No matter how responsible you are in making your comment, even if your comment is a justifiable criticism of whichever it is you’re criticizing (e.g. politician), then it may be game over for you if someone cries foul. But I may be misreading things, do you mean to say that to be a responsible social media user you need to keep mum and just let issues or people have their fun?

      Perhaps the cybercrime law is written and passed with good intentions (perhaps) but honestly, this provision on online libel needs to go or at least they should go back to the drawing board and give it more thought.

      tl;dr: Read the law a bit more thoroughly and look at the bigger picture, think outside the box of typical social media usage. I mean, I’ve been quite critical of government politicians a few times and since the law is retroactive that means I can get sued for libel if worst comes to worst.

Kung sa tingin ng karamihan eh tiwali ang isang opisyal, but magtatago sa internet world para batikusin or murahin? puwede namang mag file ng kaso di ba?

        Karamihan kasi dito, puro mura… bat di lumantad at murahin ng harapharapan? 
        Yong mga reklamo mo sa mga politiko, ifile mo na lang at daanin sa legal process… hindi yong dito hinahatulan ang isang tao o politiko… kung corrupt ang politiko, file ka ng kaso sa ombudsman…

        I won’t be saying you’re wrong but would you really trust the legal system that we have? Sometimes, all it takes is some public heat and politicians come running as if their pants were on fire. Case in point, see how, one by one, the senators are reacting to the public outcry about this law?

        Anyway, I think it’s fine to also resort to very public means – social media – to air to the world what you think. Knowledge is power, I daresay. Besides, with this issue right here, I feel quite happy to see people from other countries go “That is so wrong” when they hear about our cybercrime law. Sure, it’s not through the right channels but whichever works.

        we can’t really trust our judicial system, that it will works 100% especially to us poor. If that will be the case, then just put your trust unto the Lord and im pretty sure that He will judge those people who wronged other people….

        you’ve got it all wrong. take, for example, tito sotto’s case. he clearly plagiarized but you can’t file a case against him. how would you point out that he is wrong? pupunta ka ba sa ombudsman? of course not. maraming writers na bumatikos sa kanya online under their true names. with the cybercrime law now in effect, politicians now can sue a blogger with libel.

        well it’s actually not that easy to convict someone for libel lalo na sa internet kasi matindi ang proof of authorship, actual defamatory nature of the utterance, malice, damage, etc etc. although admittedly hassle yung makasuhan lang pero even the build up of the case for the fiscal e di din ganun kadali. actually everybody is being stressed unnecessarily here. it’s really not that easy to charge anyone for internet libel. what is distressing here is the right to block your utterances without due process. that is the true enemy of democracy when the free flow of ideas is curtailed.

    In the world of internet, I can be President Benigno S. Aquino III, or one of the
    senators who signed RA 10175. Let’s get this bill started by creating a profile
    in Facebook and Twitter for each of the government officials who signed the
    bill. Using their profile each must post highly opinionated statements which
    contain defamatory words against those rubbish government officials.

    Hopefully, these officials will be imprisoned for 12 years. I
    wonder how they would go about in disclaiming the profile we created. Probably,
    ask the web administrator for the IP address on where the account was created?
    Huh? The IP addresses are not controlled in the Philippines; we can create an
    account on behalf of another person in internet café and get away with it.

  • Descarte

    Ang mas maganda sanang batas ay Cyberspace Whistle Blower Act kapalit ng provision sa libel ng batas na yan.  Sa batas na ito, ang mga mamayan na magsusuplong o magsusumbong ng maling gawain ng public official ay bibigyang proteksyon ang kanyang identity habang ginagawa ang imbestigasyon sa isang ma-anomalyong ginawa ng public official.  Sa pag iimbestiga, maaring imbitahan pa ang ibang naging biktima ng maling gawain upang makalap ang ebidensya at makapag pataw ng kaukulang kaso.  Pero hindi kinakailangan na lumantad sila. Kapag nadesisyunan sa imbestigasyon na walang sapat na ebidensya wala dapat pananagutan ang whistle blower maliban na lamang kung yan ay napatunayan na paninirang puri.  Maraming mamayan ang gustong maging whistle blower pero takot lumantad dahil kung sino pa ang whistle blower ay sya pa ang naaakusahan tulad na lamang ni Lozada.  Parang meron na nito pero hindi malinaw sa mamayan, syempre kasi ang posibleng tatamaan ay mamayan, parang yong right-to-know bill na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa maipasa-pasa.  Kapag sa kapakanan ng mamayan at ikapapahamak ng public official, matagal umusad ang batas.  Kapag sa kapakanan ng mga public official , mabilis ang batas.  Wise ang mga mambabatas natin, sabi nila, hwag kang kumuha ng martilyo para ipukpok sa sarili mong ulo.  Hindi ko masulat yong susunod, takot ako….

      Kung sino mang kandidato ang maglagay sa kanyang campaign platform ng whistle blower act na to na magbibigay proteksyon sa mga netizen na magsusumbong ng corrupt practices ng public official, kasama na ang kotong na pulis, mga humihingi ng lagay, etc. – Iboboto at ipangangampanya ko pa.. pwera lang trapo he he, kasi malamang, campaign promise lang uuwi..

It seems like members of the supreme court is playing blind and deaf to the will of the people and against the tenet in the philippines constitution. As what some people suspects, are they now in cohorts with malacanang? afraid of impeachment eh?  hmmm

    “. . . Once again we see a mix of ignorance to technology and the desire to exert further control over a population. Neither is pretty, and neither has any place in a good government.”  – from Forbes USA website on Philippine cybercrime law.

    Once again, the Philippine government has become the laughingstock of the free world.  Thanks to the trapos and incompetent politicians.  How do we expect to compete in the global business market with stupidity like this?

    May mga nakikita akong full support sa batas na ito kesyo marami daw nagmumura sa net… Their ignorance fascinates me… ang pagmumura eh inde sakop ng libel… kung sakop ng libel ang pagmumura eh dati pa lang marami ng nakulong… 

    Yung mga in-favor sa libel na yan at automatic shutdown ng website without any warrant from the court, tumira kayo sa china for a while para maranasan nyo ang ibig sabihin ng mga taong lumalaban against sa controversial parts ng batas na ito… duon walang FB, walang Twitter… walang magmumura sa iyo…

    Mr. Angara and Sotto, here in the Philippines cyberspace serves as the conduit to express our hopes, frustrations and perspectives.  Maybe we are sometimes harsh and extreme with our  opinions, sentiments and perspectives and with our way of scrutinizing and criticising things around us–people (politicians) and their actions, especially those in public offices who aggrandized, blind and deaf to the plight of poor Filipino citizens–but, at least, we are, so far, very peaceful critics compared to the citizens of some Arab lands who immediately took to the streets even with access to internet media communications where they could have first analyzed and studied their situation but didn’t. And now you and your likewise so-called government leaders muzzled us unceremoniously because, truth be told, most or all of you simply want to stave off criticisms, deflect attention on what you do or do not do as leaders, that might compromise your political and private aspirations.  Mr. Angara, if you and your ilk go on in quelling our “voice,” there is a big probabilty that we’ll resort to other alternative, not necessarily internet connected, to continue to air our discontent.

     Our supreme court got it right this time. There is nothing urgent about this issue to merit a TRO. The access in the internet is still the same. Just like in radio, tv, and in print, language use is regulated. The same thing with internet.

    what if millions of filipinos challenged this cybercrime law and write libelous statement on the web/internet and want to be charged with libel and get jailed where are they going to house them.
    what if most working proffesionals and those working on the government do the same?did they not think of these scenarios?what will happen to the economy if these scenarios happen?
    also what if OFWs like me do the same?

    THE
    DECEPTION OF ANTI-CYBERCRIME ACT (RA 10175)

    It
    was so despicable to look back thinking that we confer our trust upon – referring
    to some senators to take care of the legislatorial function, who will makes and
    enacts laws that presupposes respect for the constitution, to allow freedom
    while enforcing order. And while having their sweetest time in the world while at
    the senate to ascertain accurately, conclusively as by judicial function… and
    yet, they still made a wrong decision… would you believe that Alibis? Anyway, all
    matters attributable to their bad judgement; ignorance, inattention and most
    specially… give honour and glory to the Malacanang tenant a big favour. Thus,
    RA 10175 Anti-Cybercrime Law Act was the sneaky outcome.  We dare you to confront your constituents
    squarely?  Most-privileged member of the
    senate, you have the advantage and superiority of means, all at your disposal
    versus the lowly Juan Dela Cruz who have no other means but to bend his ire in
    the form of comments when an act of subjugating by cruelty and oppression
    enforces.  tsk…tsk…tsk..

    The jailing of those who passed and signed the cyber crime law is overdue. 

    The alternative of jailing those who violate “their law” is too heavy not only on our democratic aspirations but also on the Philippine economy (imagine if only 10% of the 35Million Filipino internet users are jailed for 12 years – exclude the additional load on the judiciary for posting their “like” to criticisms of the likes of Lacierda and Valte and de Lima, and heaven forbid, the corrupt politicians of Albay, etc.).

    We the people have allowed these nincompoops to rule over us for too long. They are putting “law” to rule technology they hardly understand, mix antiquated right wing cold war ideological positions to disallow us, the people, to criticize their wrong-doings – and there you have it. 

    A “cybercrime law” that is a laughingstock of the world.

    At nagsisipag-palusot pa!!! 

    Buti na lang they have been at it for too long (inheriting government positions [!!!???] and the stupidities of their forebears) that we, the people seem to have had enough of them at last!!! Magkano ba ang ginagastos ng bawat isang bobo na gumawa ng batas na binabayaran ng mga buwis na pinepwersang kunin sa ating mga mamamayan?

  • 4byport

    this is easy… all you have to do is use the name of whoever created this law and create libelous word to anyone else then let’s see what this law can do. Stupid!

    Walang presidente at batas na matino sa mga Pinoy..daming matatalino..Kahit 999,999 kabutihan, isa lang ang MA_INTERPRET nilang makakasama sa HILIG nila, isa lang ang mamimiligrong pwedeng sakyan para babango sa pulitika at isa lang ang makapigil sa masamang paggamit ng internet, bahala na ang figure na nasa itaas..MASAMA ANG PRESIDENTE, MASAMA ANG MUNDO, MASAMA ANG LAHAT. Cguro basta nakakabuti sa marami pwedeng mag-sakripisyo and iilan, tulad ng naka-maskarang babae sa itaas, otherwise self-centered ang labas natin. Dami ng nagawang kabutihan si Pnoy may kokontiiiiiii lang na na-hassle gusto ng mang-gyera.. Punta na lang kaya kayo sa Spratly pa magpalabas ng galit sa Tsina?

      • Jamm3r

        ano po bang pansarili ang sinasabi mo? buong pilipinas na paaano? ano ba talaga ang pinaka-tinututulan dito ng marami? ang ginawa ko lang naman eh sumang-ayon sa sobrang ka OA ng ibang pilipino tungkol sa reaksyon nila sa batas na ito. basahin mo din iyong sinang ayunan kong post at paki intindi mo rin. then give your comment kung ano naintindihan mo dun. kasi masyadong vague yung sinasabi mong pansarili at buong pilipinas. make your comments clear and don’t hesistate to explain before you accused someone of selfishness. :)
