MYSPACE CATCHES A MURDERER 

MySpace has played an important role in helping Oakland police apprehend a 19-year old man accused of shooting a San Leandro High School football player Greg “Doody” Ballard, Jr.

Oakland police had a street name of a suspect and were able to identify Dwayne Stancill, 19 of Oakland from a picture they found on a gang’s MySpace page. Police brought the suspect to their headquarters where detectives say he confessed. What was most troubling to investigators was the lack of motive for the killing.

The internet is very useful to all because it gives all necessary information and you can also avail other resources which where you can post your necessary information and have a lot of friends all over the world. But in other way around it may also bring you to your death for example for us a military personnel we cannot post our necessary information in the internet and post our picture with our uniform because it may be recognized by the terrorist that will make our life very critical and miserable.

the cybercrime …

Aside

the cybercrime is an act which should not be tolerable by any laws because they are getting others idea or account that will cause to a stealing. the new law now said and has a universal jurisdiction: its provisions apply to all Filipino nationals regardless of the place of commission. Jurisdiction also lies when a punishable act is either committed within the Philippines, whether the erring device is wholly or partly situated in the Philippines, or whether damage was done to any natural or juridical person who at the time of commission was within the Philippines. Regional Trial Courts shall have jurisdiction over cases involving violations of the Act.

cybercrime is not too unlawful act if they are observing the rights of others. just like for example, the cybersex, it is authorized if they will do it in a private place but now a days many people are using cybersex in a public places which will make the person embarassed. so the government made a law that state that The Act, divided into 31 sections split across eight chapters, criminalizes several types of offenses, including illegal access (hacking), data interference, device misuse, cybersquatting, computer-related offenses such as computer fraud, content-related offenses such as cybersex and spam, and other offenses. The law also reaffirms existing laws against child pornography, an offense under Republic Act No. 9779 (the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009), and libel, an offense under Section 355 of the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines, also criminalizing them when committed using a computer system. Finally, the Act provides for a “catch-all” clause, wherein all offenses currently punishable under the Revised Penal Code are likewise punishable under the Act when committed using a computer, with corresponding stricter penalties than if the crimes were punishable under the Revised Penal Code alone.
