Repercussions of cybercrime law

/ 12:51 AM March 09, 2014

We are featuring the views of lawyers Karen Jimeno and Ibarra Gutierrez III on the recent decision of the Supreme Court on the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, or Republic Act No. 10175.

Last week, we ran Harry Roque, Oscar Franklin Tan and Emerson S. Bañez’s take on the high court ruling that endorsed a provision seeking to penalize authors of libelous online content but not those receiving or reacting to it.

The Supreme Court rejected a section of RA 10175 that would have allowed the Department of Justice to block access to online content.

The law, which some critics say would lead to “cyberauthoritarianism,” can now be implemented as a result of the high court’s ruling.
