Philippines gags internet with ‘draconian’ cyber crime law

• http://chrisinmaryville.net/
The Philippines has approved measures to prosecute users that post “defamatory” comments on social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook. They will be liable for a fine of 1 million pesos (US$24,000) or face up to 12 years in prison. Websites that publish the material may also be shut down. The cyber-law has been branded as ‘draconian’ and a serious violation of freedom of speech by rights groups.
