Supreme Court issues “indefinite” extension of TRO against Anti-Cybercrime Law


Chalk this up as a victory for freedom of expression for the internet kids. The Supreme Court has extended the temporary restraining order against the extremely controversial RA10175, or the Anti-Cybercrime Law, that was set to expire tomorrow, Feb 6. This decision comes after numerous groups filed petitions against it because some of the provisions in the law give the government too much power when it comes to real-time data collection and other things. The extension of the TRO was issued today. Hopefully this convinces both the Senate and the Congress to go back to the drawing board and make a law that addresses the problems that we face in the web without infringing on our right to privacy and free speech.
