Indefinite Restraining Order on the CyberCrime Law or RA 10175

Written by | Careers, Philippines, Tech


It looks like Anonymous Philippines (and all those who are against the CyberCrime Law) are the winner of this round! Since February 5, Tuesday; the Supreme Court gave an Indefinite Restraining Order (IRO?) to stop the implementation of Republic Act 10175 a.k.a. the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 or or popularly known as CyberCrime Law of the Philippines, which is also the last day of the 120 days TRO issued by the DOJ last October 9, 2012.

The issuance of the retraining order will allow the Senate and Congress to study and correct any questionable provisions that are deemed unconstitutional, like the Cybersex and online libel provision, as well as section 12 and 19, which allows the Department of Justice to take down a website without a warrant, and will allows authorities to obtain traffic data respectively.

If you can remember Anonymous Philippines was on a hackingspree early this year and defacing at least 12 Government web sites, including Tito Sen’s personal website and Police Regional Office 12 in protest of the RA 10175 and from the last tweet of #pR.is0n3r, Anonymous Ph is cookng something big this coming February 6.
