As for obscene and indecent, although the wordings are ambiguous, we should be able to rely on the acceptable norms of Malaysian cultures.

The Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 is based on the basic principles of transparency and clarity; more competition and less regulation; flexibility; bias towards generic rules; regulatory forbearance; emphasis on process rather than content; administrative and sector transparency; and industry self-regulation.
