One legal eagle early on cautioned me that at the rate and way the COMMENTEXT section are going may at some point result to an aggravation the paper can ill afford. Obviously, he was referring to the likelihood of  more libel suits or complaints that might be generated should the most read portion of the newspaper is not managed as he perceives it should.
I accepted the gesture of concern graciously, however saying that his fear was more or less prompted by what is clearly the inadequacy of our present laws to keep up with the demands of modern communication technology.
The law governing or regulating publications and various forms of mass media is so archaic that it can only seek full relevance at a time dinosaurs are still roaming the earth. How for instance can restrictions or regulations be imposed on communications and publications done via the cell phone, e-mail, web or blog sites – in short, cyberspace? No clear answer yet! The legal implications and complications are vast and huge that it not only boggles but more approriately “googles” the mind.
Just recently I received a “poison text message” from an unknown number detailing the alleged misbehaviors and sexual daliances of a married woman-friend. True enough, I was not the only recipient of the message as proven by the ensuing exchange of varied reactions among friends and acquaintances. Clearly, there was a violation of a person’s reputation here as the requirement of publicity has been met. But how to prosecute and make accountable the sender for the impact of his message is not clear under our existing laws.
And if it is not clear in the case of a cell phone message, then it is not any way clearer in cases of higher forms of communication easily available in and by the internet.
