Simply put, if as in the news…. the UP Website was hacked by suspected hackers from China. The “defacing” is considered an insult to the Philippines in the light of the opposing Scarbarough Shoal claims of the Chinese and Filipinos.
Can we make them liable? or are we sitting ducks if the hacker is from abroad
to answer the question, can we consider a website a property?
if yes,considered property damage hence the accused may be held liable, venue would be where they committed the crime. remember in venue is jurisdictional.
