Philippine NTC requires license to blog to friendster to facebook… etc.

Now that I’m back blogging. let me tell you a comedy-horror story in the making.

memorandum subject as “GUIDELINES ON THE PROVISION OF CONTENTS, INFORMATION, APPLICATIONS, AND ELECTRONIC GAMES

saw this story at codamon’s facebook then red the stories at problogger.com.ph, www.businessmirror.com.ph & mikeabundo.com.

6,000 pesos to get a license?

mike says:

This is the most unenforceable proposal I have ever seen. What are they going to do, require five million Filipino Friendster users to get a license before posting pictures? This proposal clearly comes from the outdated mindset that only corporations can develop content.

I say?  This could be a premature april fool’s joke or simply B#LLSHIT at its finest.
