T2F Q&A: CyberCrime Bill - Flaws and Dangers

Ok ... Until a permanent and larger space is found for all the stuff, I am running some clips on this post. Also, for those in Karachi who missed the session, the 2 hours or so of videos will be available on a CD for the nominal cost of Rs. 30 at T2F from next week. It's a bit large to post on the 'Net and breaking it into 10-min chunks (as now required by YouTube) is not a pleasant solution. However, I believe that the clips you see below will do more than enough to get you thinking and participating, since they deal with YOU! Lawyer Zahid Jamil is seen responding to the questions in all of the videos hosted here. If you are just a citizen who uses Computers and wants a law to deal with cybercrime you may find that you have no protection against such a law if it is misused. * * Dentists * Doctors * Photographers/Bloggers * Marketeers/Programmers * Educators/Researchers * ISPs (Does the Government think it means Inadvertent Service Providers?) * IT Professionals and Companies that receive outsourced work Everyone is going to be affected. So, spread the word. Write to Newspapers. Question this on TV Channels. Write to the Ministry. Apply all the pressure you can. Download the 3 PDF files that are recommended reading.

I think we need these videos on YouTube in a more shareable format so that bloggers can embed them into their blog posts

Just to let you know, I have not been receiving blog update emails from your feed-burner, even though I have subscribed a number of times.

Can you please look into it...

I just watched the sixth one...only to watch you and to hear your voice...

:P

From what I gathered from watching that one, however, the law definitely is a long way off from implementation, or, it should be, at least.
