“Where to download Ram Revilla-Janelle Manahan sex video?”

It won’t be surprising to find out that you have been directed to this site by typing the aforementioned words in Google. For a few days now, the Internet has been abuzz about the circulating sex video of murdered actor Ramgen “Ram” Revilla and his girlfriend Janelle Manahan. The authenticity of this was confirmed by lawyer Argee Guevarra, the private counsel of Manahan.

Guevarra described the leaking of this private video online “the second assassination of Ramgen and second frustrated murder of Janelle orchestrated and masterminded by the Bautista household.”

The one-minute sex video was taken in the bathroom using a hand-held camera (credits: NoyPiStuff.blogspot.con)

This is another unexpected twist in the drama over the October 28 murder of Ram, wherein his own siblings are tagged as the mastermind. Ganalyn Magsaysay explained that even though Ramgen’s laptop is with them, they can’t open it because it is password-protected.

The person/persons responsible for disseminating the video in the cyberspace can be held liable for violating Section 4 of Republic Act 9995, or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009. The bill gained momentum at the height of the controversy regarding the sex videos of Hayden Kho with different women (Katrina Halili, Maricar Reyes, among others).

Section 4.d prohibits anyone from showing or exhibiting “the photo or video coverage or recordings of (sexual acts) or any similar activity through VCD/DVD, Internet, cellular phones, and other similar means or device.”

These prohibitions apply even if there is consent from the persons in the video. Curiously, the bill does not prohibit individuals from taking videos of themselves while having sex as long as it remains private (see Section 3.d and 4.a and b). (This particular video was taken by Ramgen using a handheld-camera.)

Technically, the mere uploading of this one-minute sex clip in websites is punishable by law. Street vendors who will sell this video can also be held liable. Violating RA 9995 carries a maximum penalty of 7-year imprisonment and a fine of P500, 000.

Any media outlet that airs this clip or publishes screen shots from the video can have their license to operate or franchise revoked. The law sounds strict, but it is almost impossible to implement thoroughly. Using the Ram Revilla-Janelle Manahan sex video, here are some questions I have in mind:

1. Where did this video come from (i.e. Ram’s laptop)? Who copied it from that source?

2. Who uploaded it to the Internet?

3. Who are those who reposted/re-uploaded the video in other websites?

Pinpointing the persons behind the aforementioned acts is a near-impossible task for our authorities. First, the Revilla clan seems not to be cooperative – even though they should feel violated because a murdered kin is involved in the video. Second, how are they going to find out the person who did the initial uploading of the video online? Third, how can they track the online users (all of them!) who reposted the video in other websites?

If a concrete case can emerge from the proliferation of the Ram Revilla-Janelle Manahan sex video, then it can be the first real test of the strength and worthiness of the Philippine Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act.

    I already watched the video. The video’s a hoax. I don’t think it was Ram and Janelle. Probably some look-alikes that, thanks to post-prod editing, could make you it’s them. BTW, nice title. The boys will definitely read this hahaha.

      Hey, Ivan. Beg to disagree with you on that. I think it’s them *and she did not deny it*. My instincts are right. Talk about search engine optimization. :-)

      i think you are grossly misinformed! even her lawyer confirmed that it was her and the late ramgen revilla.. what more proof do you need?!?

    • markpere2010 said:

      I agree, Kuya Sebs. Or else, better repeal that law if they can’t implement. But realistically speaking, that is a tall order. First task is to point out who uploaded it first. :-)

    Techie Part : Deleted Files can be retrieved even in a Re-Formatted Hard Drive, a PW-Protected machine is easier to access than what I’d stated first.

    Do partners really need to video their sex activities? If nothing is recorded nothing to share or upload.

    it may not be a very tall order at all with the right tools and the cooperation of concerned website owners/admins so that upload time logs and ip addresses can be scrutinized.

    it is also not difficult nowadays to crack open user and administrator passwords of computers running Windows operating systems; one only needs to search the net and in an instant be barraged with sbs tips.

    Grabe… Just saw the video… Let’s just say that they were so intimate to do love making and we cannot blame that act because they were both in a very serious relationship. I was just wondering why do they have to video their intimate sexual intercourse??? Now that the guy is 6 feet underground and the girl is still recovering, who and how will they defend themselves???

      you watch to many CSI shows..wala pa sa ‘pinas makakagawa nun..and kung meron man, wala sa NBI. first off,puro macho fucks ang pinoy mindset, pag magaling ka sa tech,di ka macho. secondly, you think can afford ng law enforcement natin na mag hire ng ganung mga tao??think not.. A) again, you watch to many CSI shows for your own good b) you have to much faith in our police (kahit anu sabihin mo, police pa din yan. shoot now,ask later philo ng mga yan)..

    I feel that Ramgen’s sibling did not intently uploaded the video. Ramgens Laptop may have been left open and that if he has a downloader engine program like limewire, utorrent, bitcomet, etc. and that if the file sharing option is enabled; it could be downloaded by others in the network. Like for example in Bitcomet. If the program is running you can either upload videos by seeding of videos or whatever, or just let your program running so that whatever files you opted to share whether documents, music or videos you are technically uploading it thru peers. There’s no wonder that some sex scandal are exposed because of this cyber technology.

    Better check your downloader option, you might be sharing your most secret files….

    bobo nyo. tignan nyo lang IP address ng pinaka-unang nag-upload at cross check kung kaninong IP address as registered sa internet, ctrl+F type in IP address. viola! tapos ang usapan. konting matinong research lang yan eh. di naman importante kung san inextract yung vid. importante sino nag-upload. too many CSI your face. ang mahirap kasi sa pinas walang kwenta ang education system eh. lahat nakakapagtapos ng college kahit wala namang K. yan tuloy, dami bobo sa mundo. di porke nag iingles ka, matalino ka nang hayup ka.
