The bill has some positive points:
It recognizes Internet usage as a positive development in technology, that it has become a way of life in almost all government, corporate and even personal operations, functions and communications.
It recognizes the necessity to come up with legislation to “protect the right to privacy” of Internet users and cyber citizens, particularly against phishing and spamming.
It is an effort to instill into the Internet somehow a “code of ethics,” or standards for “correct and responsible usage” as is the practice being followed and abided by users of other medium as dictated by law or community-accepted values.
However, some proposals may be deemed problematic, either in premise or presentation.
Kabataan Partylist, through this blog site, would like to consult you, Filipino ‘netizens’, on your comments and suggestions with regard to the bill, before Congress passes it on second reading, and eventually resolves to legislate it into law. The text of the bill may be read here.
