Possible Backlash as File Sharing Websites Blocked

When I knew that the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is in fact blocking some porn sites, I just too it lightly.  Porn sites are not in my ‘frequently visited sites’, so I didn’t really care.  In fact, not only are porn sites blocked, but some other sites are also blocked.  These sites as I know are said to question ones religion. What religion, well.. you know I know-lah.

The list of sites baned for File Sharing

Yesterday The Star Online highlighted that the MCMC has instucted the internet service providers to block file sharing sites.

I guess the MSC Malaysia Bill of Guarantees which porhibits the cencorship of the internet means nothing anymore with so many sites now being sensored.

Regardless, I don’t think this move by MCMC will help Najib’s hard work in engaging the younger generation which spends hours online.  I see great backlash if the news proves to be reality, and with the 13th General Elections rumoured to be close, I’m sure the oppositions will have a field day.

Hey, even Hitler is pissed =P (watch the video)

Too bad he’s not Malaysian, and therefore can’t vote. LOL

  1. With regards to ‘MSC Malaysia Bill of Guarantees which porhibits the cencorship of the internet means nothing anymore with so many sites now being sensored’, I would like to take you to understand a little farther. In accordance to BoG 7’s interpretation, while the Government will not censor the Internet, this does not mean that any person may disseminate illegal content with impunity and without regard to the law. To the extent that any act is illegal in the physical world, it will similarly be outlawed in the online environment. Hence, laws prohibiting dissemination of, for example, indecent / obscene or other illegal materials will continue to apply. In this regard, relevant ministries and agencies will continue to take appropriate actions and enforce those laws that are under their respective purview

    • Thank you for the information. I know about that part. It’s just that not everyone is misusing file sharing sites to download copyrighted stuff. It’s unfair to punish everyone just because of a few bad heads.
