State Duma may adopt draft law on website blacklist in first reading
MOSCOW, July 3 - RAPSI. The State Duma plans to consider on July 6 in its first hearing a draft law on creating a unified register of domains and websites with information prohibited for distribution, including child pornography, and information promoting drugs and suicide, RIA Novosti was told in the Duma on Tuesday.
The draft law proposes keeping a register of websites and addresses with content dangerous for children. First and foremost, the blacklist will include websites with child pornography and information promoting suicide and drug use.
Websites will not be entered into the register automatically. The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, IT and Mass Media, which will handle the blacklist by law, will charge a non-profit organization with monitoring websites containing such unlawful information.
After discovering a website with unlawful content, these organizations must report to the service, which will then warn the owner of the resource that there is illegal content on his website.
If the owner does not respond within 24 hours, the hosting provider will have to remove such content. If neither did this, the website will be entered into the blacklist.
The service will also monitor other unlawful content, such as websites promoting war or ethnic violence. These resources will be entered into the register by court decision.
