Pres. Aquino signs Republic Act No. 10515 otherwise known as ‘Anti-Cable Television and Cable Internet Tapping Act of 2013’ 

PRESIDENT Benigno S. Aquino III signed into law Republic Act No. 10515 otherwise known as the "Anti-Cable Television and Cable Internet Tapping Act of 2013" that is aimed at protecting the cable television and cable internet industries from cable pilferage. 

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte announced during the regular press briefing in Malacanang on Tuesday that the Chief Executive signed the law last April 17, 2013. 

The law prohibits cable television and internet tapping and penalizes offenders with imprisonment of two to five years or a fine of P50,000 to P100,000 or both, at the discretion of the court. 

If the offender is a corporation or association, the president, manager, managing partner or any officer of the corporation or partnership who directly participated in the violation of the Act shall be held liable. 

With the President’s signing of the law, illegal tapping of any signal offered over cable television (CATV) or cable internet system and the malicious destruction or removal of existing CATV or cable internet facilities will be prohibited. 

The law also prohibits recording, reproducing, distributing, importing or selling of any intercepted or received CATV system/network signals for commercial purposes without the authority of the concerned CATV or cable internet service provider. 

Within sixty (60) days after the effectivity of this Act, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) shall undertake an information dissemination campaign to inform the public of the existence of this Act. 
This Act shall take effect fifteen (15) days after its complete publication in at least two (2) newspapers of general circulation. 

The newly-signed Act which is a consolidation of Senate Bill No. 3345 and House Bill No. 709 was finally passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives on January 28, 2013 and January 30, 2013, respectively. (PND)
