For now, our freedom to express our opinion without fear is back, for now after the Supreme Court issue a Temporary Restraining Order against Cybercrime Law. After 15 petitions have been filed, we have our freedom back, for now.

The respondents to the petitions - President Benigno Aquino III, Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr., the Departments of Justice, Interior and Local Government, and Science and Technology, the Philippine National Police and the National Bureau of Investigation – were given 10 days to submit their comments on 15 petitions assailing the law, which critics deem unconstitutional (Which is after the Libel-clause has been inserted). Oral arguments has been set to January 15, 2013.
