The Philippine Government has just passed a bill that effectively ends the Freedom of Expression in the Philippines. The Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 is the most notorious law ever witnessed in cyber-history, and the language of the bill is cunningly designed to make you think it only applies to individuals who are deep in cyber-technology and doesn't apply to everyone - but some parts of the bill basically say the government can imprison anyone who commits libel either by written messages, comments, blogs, or posts in sites such as Facebook, Twitter, or any other comment-spaces of social media in the Internet. It effectively gives the Philippine government the ability to totally censor anyone for virtually anything they don't like.
