Lala Sotto-Santiago

Chair Lala babalansehin pagsaklaw sa online streaming

HARD TALK
ni Pilar Mateo

SUBSOB na sa trabaho niya ang bagong talagang (Movie and Television Review and Classification Board) MTRCB Chair na si Lala Sotto.

Nakatakda itong lumipad pa-Amerika para makipagpulong sa Motion Pictures Association of America. Kasabay na rin sa paghahatid sa anak na dalaga na roon mag-aaral.

Mga dalawang linggong mawawala sa kanyang tanggapan si Chair Lala (na gusto niyang term of endearment niya sa entertainment media).

Pero bago ang paglipad niya sa bayan ni Uncle Sam, may pahatid na mensahe ito ukol sa ‘On expanding the jurisdiction of the MTRCB.’

“Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) Chairperson Diorella Maria “Lala” Sotto-Antonio said members of the Board would weigh the pros and cons of expanding the jurisdiction of the MTRCB to include online video streaming services under the body’s regulatory powers. 

“The matter will go through the process and will be discussed by the Board. We will assess the impact of legislators’ call to expand the board’s jurisdiction to cover online streaming platforms and applications and come up with a balanced and fair position,” Sotto-Antonio said. 

Different groups, mainly concerned parents, have been asking the MTRCB to clamp down on the movies, programs, and videos shown on various online streaming platforms, some of which they claim should be subjected to regulation.

However, various groups have countered that regulating the video streaming industry could 

prompt platform creators to collect or increase subscription fees to the detriment of their users. 

The MTRCB was created under PD 1986. It was tasked to review and classify movie and 

television content prior to public airing. 

“We will balance all the concerns raised by various groups. I assure the public that the MTRCB shares everyone’s desire to ensure that children are not exposed to content that is not appropriate for their age.”

Abangan ang magiging desisyon ng naturang ahensiya.
