    Paolo Bediones Private Cartoon MP4 Video and the Republic Act 10175

    Paolo Bediones suddenly becomes the latest trend on the internet after his alleged video scandal leaked in social media and public blog sites including online newspapers.

    In the said Cartoon MP4 video, Paolo Bediones who happened to be one of the most wholesome personalities on Philippine Television hosting various TV reality programs like GMA's "Extra-Extra or Extra challenge" and many others, had performed private act with a young, good looking model China Roses who reportedly denied being the lady on the private video with the TV host.

    People enjoyed the video, obviously, and begun spreading it for the purpose of gaining popularity in their site or to get traffic but what does the cyber crime act say about leaking or spreading scandalous video?


    The leaked video was uploaded to different sites such as torrents, blogs, even the most public wholesome video channel, YouTube. The leaked video was on air when the news came about.

    Republic Act 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 did not impose any new penalties for the spreading of scandal videos online mainly because there’s already a law that governs it, which is RA 9995 or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009.
    Section 4.d of the said law prohibits anyone from showing or exhibiting “the photo or video coverage or recordings of (sexual acts) or any similar activity through VCD/DVD, Internet, cellular phones, and other similar means or device.”
    Participants of spreading the lewd materials via internet is liable of this republic act.

    In the past years, I was also writing articles which was related to scandals and to call attentions to readers to spread the news but after realizing such step was a big mistake, I stopped doing so and I started to take down such articles from this blog.

    Why people are delighted to publicize such materials which in fact it could only harm the victims?

    Paolo Bediones is one of my favorite personalities because of his not only entertaining but also wholesome TV programs. I was shocked to hear that he became the spice of the scandalous conversation over the internet right now. Should Paolo intend to take such video but surely he was a victim of such publication unless he himself has participation in such act.

    The video had circulated in the internet more than a wildfire as a lot of people are being curious of such video content. I hope you won't be caught of participating in the publicizing that materials as according to the Philippine Law, you will be penalized and must face the consequences of doing so.

    God bless everyone.
