Video: Magna Carta for Philippine Internet Freedom: A Primer

The need for an internet freedom bill had long been the subject of online discussion but the drafting of the #MCPIF went into full steam only upon the enactment of Republic Act No. 10175, or the Cybercrime Prevention Act. The law was criticized not only for its draconian approach to digital rights but also for how it passed by Congress virtually under the radar. With the drafting of the #MCPIF, netizens found a way to address the shortcomings and faults of the law.

Here is the video presentation during the MCPIF forum at the Bahay Alumni
. An audio version will soon be uploaded.
