I’m attending a hearing tomorrow on a proposal by the Philippines’ National Telecommunications Commission that will require licenses for online content developers. Yes, you read that right.

    Ganyan na ba kabobo at kagahaman ang mga tao sa gobyerno in particular sa NTC? I do not mean to be rude but these people in NTC are mentally retarded or perhaps they are so high in drugs that they cannot even distinguish what is fantasy and what is reality.

    Sino ba namang gago ang mag-popropose ng ganyan?. Not even China does that moronic actions. No offense sa mga taga NTC but paurong kayo kung mag-isip.

    Ok so if this draft will be approved, this will shut every filipino *chan, blog, forum, social sites, etc. to silence. Isn’t this a violation of our free speech?

    I think this is some followup about that suspended student in QC who blogged about his school and principal.

    Crazy Crazy Crazy…

    The government is asking too much from the people.

    Before they hop into this delusional idea, they should be focused more on TRIVIAL MATTERS…

    Further study? harharhar I think they need Ambien or Valiums..

    Blogging, is a practice of freedom of speech. The blogger is entitled to whatever content he/she wishes to post bearing in mind the possibilities that it would create pandemonium or world peace..

    So if a person posts e-books on his blog and asks for a small fee from those who download it, he is subject to these regulations?

    What about those sites that offer shareware and ask for donations? Will they be forced to comply too?

    This is another example of money-making at the NTC; and of regulations that will stifle the growth of online content.

  5. Yeah, “protect” traditional media. “Prevent” traditional media from crashing.
    Governments can easily control traditional media. They can’t control the cyberworld.

    They have the resources to talk to traditional media and they know who to talk to and force to.
    They do not have the resources to talk to the online media and they do not know who to talk to and force to.

    So, here’s China, slowly opening up and slowly giving more freedom.
    And here are the “Democratic” countries, panicking how to control FREEDOM.
