Revised RA 8293: A new threat to bloggers -Allows warrantless searches, 'erases' right to personal use

RA 8293 or Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines has major amendments which threatens to strip Filipinos of the right to bring home copyrighted music, movies, and books from abroad among others.

The newly amended Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines (RA 8293) allows warrantless searches of business establishments and offices for violations of IP rights.

Also, the amendments seek to expand the meaning of infringement to include the making of temporary copies. Finally, mall owners, lessors, and online content providers (bloggers) will become more vulnerable to infringement done by others.

The revised RA 8293, primarily sponsored by Sen. Manuel Villar, was passed by Congress and submitted to President Benigno Aquino III on January 29 for his approval and enactment.
