Mothership.sg told to comply with licensing requirements in place for online news sites

“Would you consider this a cowering tactic to shut down that has a bold move in delivering  news or would you agree how MDA handled the situation. You be the judge.”

 

SINGAPORE – Singapore’s media regulator has told a current affairs website that often conveys the news in a light-hearted way that it will have to comply with the same licensing rules demanded of online news websites. (See note below)

The Media Development Authority (MDA) told the website, Mothership.sg, that it had to be “individually licensed”, given its frequent reports about Singapore and its significant reach, the operators of Mothership.sg said in a statement today.

Under this licensing framework, Mothership.sg editors will have to comply with MDA’s take-down directions – that is, to remove content found to be in breach of certain standards such as being in bad taste, offending religious sensitivities or relating to vice, within 24 hours of being notified.

They also have to put up a performance bond of $50,000, similar to that required for niche TV broadcasters.

Mothership.sg executive director Lien We King and managing editor Martino Tan met with the MDA on July 16, and were informed that their website – launched in August 2013 – has met the threshold that would require a license under Section 8 of the Broadcasting Act.

Mothership.sg becomes the 11th website to come under this individual licensing framework, which came into effect in 2013.

It applies to online news sites that are accessed from at least 50,000 different Internet Protocol (IP) addresses in Singapore each month, over a period of two months in a row, and that contain at least one article a week on Singapore news, over the same two months.

The other 10 sites were individually licensed on June 1, 2013. Seven are under Singapore Press Holdings (SPH), which publishes The Straits Times and operates www.straitstimes.com and Stomp, while two sites are under MediaCorp, and remaining site is Yahoo Singapore.

The MDA said in a statement to The Straits Times that other than these sites and Mothership.sg, “there are no other websites identified at this point for individual licensing”.

“Where MDA has assessed that a website has met the criteria to be individually licensed, MDA will issue a formal notification and work with the site to move it to the new licensing framework,” MDA added.

MDA says such licensing is necessary, as the content of these websites is relied upon by members of the public to …

You and many individuals that might have contacted a locksmith when keys were locked in the car or perhaps a home door lock stopped working sometimes has unwittingly been the victim of a phony locksmith. As you may be lured to call up the nearest or the readily available one, the question is how can you avoid getting swindled by scammers if you ever need a locksmith in emergency situation?

To avoid falling for scam when choosing a locksmith service from a telephone book – or from the internet – you will need to be cautious. Several “local” companies are not local at all! These scam artists comes in an unmarked vehicle, do a poor job, and overcharge you.

Locksmiths should be willing to show you their identification and proper papers. Together checking the identification, you should also have a business card and check to be sure the names match. Nearly all emergency locksmiths will arrive at your location in a clearly marked business vehicle. The logo and business name need to be professionally painted on the side. Otherwise, you’ll need to be more cautious.

Insurance coverage is a must for any locksmith; in this line of work it is not very difficult to damage somebody’s property, and the insurance can help cover the cost of any destruction of your property. In many areas, locksmiths will also be required to be licensed before operating on anyone’s property. In United States, some states require a locksmith to be licensed.

One frequent scam fake locksmiths use is offering a replacement lock after somewhat damaging the lock they’re attempting to open. The replacement lock is normally of bad quality and they charge too much for installing and replacing. Prior to any job commences, ask for a quotation (over the phone). Are there extra charge you will have to pay, for example for an emergency service? Always ask: “What exactly is the total cost going to be when the job is done?”. Request a written estimation. When the estimate he gives you when he arrives does not match up the one he gave you over the telephone, find another locksmith!

Con locksmiths typically market with low-cost prices. They can take apart the lock then come up with hidden charges for the job. The customer is now forced to pay up or leave their house or business without a working lock. You should know the standard rate for these services so that you’ll have an idea if the quote is significantly low or too high.
