ABSTRACT

The research focused on selected provisions of RA 10175 or the Cybercrime Law

and compared these with the provisions of RA 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Law,

RA 8792 or the Electronic Commerce Act, and the international treaty on cybercrime,

the Convention on Cybercrime of the Council of Europe. The research also studied the

local and foreign jurisprudence and related these with the selected provisions of RA

10175. The findings in the research revealed that the provisions of RA 10175 on libel,

cybersex, unsolicited commercial communications, and offenses against the

confidentiality, integrity and availability of computer data and systems are constitutional

while the provision on child pornography specifically on virtual child pornography is

unconstitutional as decided by a foreign court having similar provisions with RA 10175.

Finally, the research found that some provisions of RA 10175 are similar with those of

the Convention on Cybercrime, however, the Philippines is not yet a signatory of the

said Convention.
