Fighting back for online rights

By Zwbdc on 15th June

On Monday I went to see the Public Prosecutor about such incidences as these against cybersphere operators. The woeful destruction, threats and attacks on people who use the internet has to stop!! There is also a case coming up before the constitutional court. We won't take lack of knowledge of the internet as an excuse anymore!! We have taught you enough now let us have our work environment as we allow you to have yours.


This is what the taxi industry in Pretoria did to a uber driver when they came to fetch a passenger. 




South African Media in a Dilemma and here is why

By Zwbdc on 7th February

To read the full version go to 

The digital advertising ecosystem comprises an unlevel playing field vastly favoring the duopoly of Google and Facebook. Controlling 85% of media spend and 80% of referral traffic to independent publishers, this duopoly sets the rules and uses undue influence. Publishers and marketers alike reinforce the walled gardens of these duopolies, enabling the continued growth of these two companies, while simultaneously eroding their own revenue and ability to compete.

How Independent Publishers Can Fight the Google-Facebook Duopoly

Agent cost Snapscan client loss

By Zwbdc on 7th December 2016

In a time where banking is cutthroat an agents attitude is extremely important. I had an appointment with the agent this morning. I work from home and on flea markets (selling collectables) and desired a snapscan merchant account to take payments. I duly paid R250 for an agent to meet with me. Firstly the agent did not check out that the venue was in operation and then changed the location. I am still getting my feet in where places are and got lost thus was late. They apologized but where so busy looking at their phone. The customer experience was totally lousy as he presents me with an object which would of been better couriered to me. Then I expected him to fill me in on the details but nothing like that. So I asked questions like
1. can i take other peoples sales?
2. can i introduce others to the product?
3. what about my online sales?
Whats more he had not done his due diligence and googled me to find out what I looked like. There are so many fakes out there I would of thought this part of giving someone an account.
He looked at me with a blank glare and said he would need to get back to me. Then he got up to go.
So i took out my account, ID and asked what else he needed. Then he says he needs to check out the premises. There is no F way I would let anyone I dont know come to my home. So I said no because I work from home. He insisted.
So I told him to take his plague and leave. I got up and left. Sorry Snapscan but you are not getting my support and I would like my R250 back.

“No person may host any website or provide access to the internet as an internet service provider, unless such person is registered with the Board in terms of section 27A of the Act.”


 The requirement relating to the hosting of websites is something they have made up with no legal force and effect.
 
The requirement for ISPs has been around for a few years but they keep adding new things that ISPs are required to do. The reality here is that very few ISPs are registered with the FPB – in large part because the FPB does not seem to be capable of processing applications.

The law can be found here  http://www.fpb.org.za/profile-fpb/legislation1 as well as on  http://www.ellipsis.co.za/the-film-publications-board-and-online-content-regulation/

Whilst Post and Telecommunications make the law as well on this subject. have a look here http://www.dtps.gov.za/documents-publications/acts.html

This law will make it near impossible for small and micro online business to be started. I have taken 3 years to build this website which is still not bringing in an income.

Have your say and get this sorted out
