Globe Telecom stepped up its drive versus illegal content by blocking a total of 2,471 domains or sites in 2017 that hosted lewd content and child pornography as part of its #PlayItRight advocacy campaign.

The company has taken a stronger stance to combat child pornography by blocking websites and related content as stipulated in the implementing rules and regulations of Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009. “As a purpose-led organization, we have a responsibility to ensure that our products and services will not be used for illegal activities. Globe Telecom strongly commits to helping address child pornography in the country,” said Yoly Crisanto, SVP for Corporate Communications. She emphasized that the company will actively look out for illegal sites that contain vulgar content involving children.

Having partnered with global and local content creators and distributors for its content business, Globe has also taken an active role in promoting legitimate sources of online content. In 2017, the company launched the #PlayItRight advocacy to help the entertainment industry curb piracy and protect intellectual property rights. “Our advocacy #PlayItRight goes beyond anti-piracy, it also aims to protect customers against malware and other cyber security threats that normally accompany illegal content or torrenting sites,” Crisanto revealed.

“With today’s highly accessible and affordable data and content packages, downloading content from legitimate sources has become so easy and convenient,” she said. “As more mobile and home broadband customers become accustomed to streaming videos on their devices, we must provide our customers with safe and quality content, while also protecting the sources of original content, including the licensed content of our global partners,” she added.

She said that the #PlayItRight campaign sends a strong message to the public to consume digital content the right way. “We want everyone to consciously behave positively online and stop illegal torrents or other illegitimate online sources. Let’s create new habits that will encourage people to create more original content and give them what’s rightfully due to them,” she said.

In 2014, Globe introduced Spotify that changed the way Filipinos download music, helping curb illegal download of mp3 music from illegitimate sources.
