MANILA, Philippines – What exactly are the implications of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012?
In this week’s edition of #TalkThursday, Rappler talks to University of the Philippines law professor Atty. JJ Disini.
Disini is one of the five lawyers who took part in day one of the Supreme Court oral arguments on the Cybercrime law. The other four are lawyers Harry Roque, Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares, Rodel Cruz and Julius Matibag.
Disini, a Harvard University graduate, is a technology law expert. He played a role lobbying the passage of Republic Act No. 8792 or the eCommerce Act.
When asked why he is petitioning against the Cybercrime law Disini said, “We don’t want an Orwellian type of government, the big brother age.“
Is Cybercrime law Orwellian? Atty. JJ Disini explains his stand.
