22 sites, blogs investigated by MCMC
Deputy Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum told Senator Sharifah Azizah Syed Zain in Dewan Rakyat on Monday that out of those blogs investigated, the commission had also forwarded three investigation papers to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
“Most of the blogs and websites are being operated using platforms from overseas and efforts to obtain evidence necessary for action often come to a dead end.
“Therefore, it’s very hard to take legal action against these blogs,”he said.
Since my blog is just a personal blog, I guess I won’t be in that 22 sites list (there are hundreds thousands of blogs out there), but they have raised an interesting issue of blogs hosted oversea are very hard to take action against. I believe this includes those using bloggers.com, blogspot.com, wordpress.com or personal hosting using oversea server/hosting company.
Beside the high price of local hosting, this is a good excuse/reason to host your blog or website oversea. 😀
