A monopod is like a tripod, except it has just one leg.
Monopods are sometimes referred to as selfie sticks, but they can be used for taking more than just self-portraits.
That wording seems a bit awkward, but it certainly seems to suggest that even willing cybersex is now illegal if it's done "for favor or consideration." People in the Philippines are quite reasonably worried that the language here is quite broad. It seems a bit on the harsh side: Any person found guilty of any of the punishable acts enumerated in Section 4(c)(1) of this Act shall be punished with imprisonment of prision mayor or a fine of at least Two hundred thousand pesos (Ph P200,000.00) but not exceeding One million pesos (Ph Pl,000,000.00) or both. basically cybersex is a crime in the Philippines that could net you more than six years in jail...
Prision mayor appears to mean at least six years in prison.
Monopods range from around in price for simple models, to hundreds of dollars for advanced models made with premium materials.Our list includes selfie stick models which will work with smartphones, Go Pro cameras/action cameras, digital cameras, or digital camcorders.Whether you use the camera on your lightweight smartphone, or a heavy duty professional camera, the following monopods can support the weight of your device.The EFF points us to the news of the Philippines signing into law the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, which has a number of interesting and worrisome provisions.The EFF, quite rightly, focuses on the fact that it makes online libel a criminal rather than civil offense, which could lead to jail time.
