Please keep ramblings to a minimum.

This law also applies to anonymous mobile phone messages, spam e-mails, and also cameras, etc. etc.

Consider if you are taking a picture at a public place and someone complains to authorities that you have taken his/her picture without permission, you can be arrested and trialed under this law.

The concerning thing is that FIA has been given full hand and we all know these guys work for those who have power and money, and so they will be making false cases on the orders of their masters. In Pakistan, all laws are made by authorities to tackle their rivals and especially to suppress the poor.

The other thing of concern is the size of penalties, they are huge, unacceptable.

what you guys say?

you cant catch cyber criminals until u give every phone line a static ip address

or simply u register all the sims to their original user's name

like someone can go and buy a zong sim frm pan wala and use net and do cybercrime and he is not catchable

The law defines a terroristic act as an attempt to “alarm, frighten, disrupt, harm, damage or carry out an act of violence” against people or the government.

so…keep the Mr. 10% jokes to a minimum folks, as it could be seen to be ‘harming the government’ :D


#17

so what about those spam mails which i receive daily from unknown users and addresses?


#18

If you remember we discussed each section of this E-Crime Bill (Prevention of electronic Crime Bill 2007) before the hacking of this forum. It is the same law (ordinance) re-issued by this government, full of nonsense. It only empowers FIA to make more and more money. Poor netcafe owners will suffer.

@ SaadIbrahim

My guess is that somebody in law makers saw and literary believe that was shown in Die Hard 4. They might think that it is possible to "send virus" and a computer explodes because C4 is attached to that computer. Now there we have death penalty for it.

Hurray! We Pakistanis are thinking far more in depth of "cyber crime" future. :D

On the serious part, the death penalty is for "cyber terrorism", in which a person uploads "death video", "terrorism literature" or "make emails with terror threats".
