Written By Pinoy Tekkie on Miyerkules, Abril 8, 2015 | 5:28 AM
Recent events have again demonstrated that as technology rushes into the future, the law will lag behind and leave uncertainty in places where opportunities can be found. Recognizing the outlines of that uncertain landscape is helpful in providing us with the ability to assess risks and guide us in navigating through uncharted paths.
On its 15th year, the Legal Forum series of the Disini & Disini Law Office continues to examine legal gaps in Philippine laws to provide counsel and advice to those who wish to venture into new fields. We believe the challenges for the present (and near future) involve Cybercrime, E-Business regulations and Bitcoins.
Cybercrime creates a toll on economic activity and drags beneficial technologies into darker realms. Recent regulatory changes and developments also complicate the environment for online, mobile and other e-businesses. Moreover, the emergence of Bitcoin may prove to be a major development in economic and social relations as it has the potential to disrupt not only the area of currency but other activities where the technology is applied. Join us at the Disini Tech Legal Forum as we explore these and other issues confronting businesses today.
Bitcoin isn’t just a method of payment or exchange. At its heart, it is a technological invention that creatively uses mathematics and network technologies to provide a robust and stable system that can theoretically support a medium of exchange, free from the control of any sovereign and subject only to the dictates of the open market. Understanding the Bitcoin protocol and business methods is absolutely necessary. Beyond its current uses, the underlying technology suggests ...other uses in less obvious places such as land ownership and even elections.
Cybercrimes have left the realm of fiction and have invaded the ordinary lives of all Filipinos. Together with law enforcement, the National Prosecution Service of the Department of Justice analyzes cybercrime cases, build them up and prosecute them in court. This session will go through the steps of litigating actual cybercrime cases from assessing electronic evidence and the myriad challenges of presenting them in court.
