Roskomnadzor finished with bloggers' register
Meanwhile, the agency draws attention to the fact that "users of the network publishing author's content are required to comply with the requirements of other legislative acts related to the collection, processing and dissemination of information."
In Russia, the maintenance of the bloggers' registry has been stopped due to the abolition of the relevant provisions of the law. This was reported in the press service of Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor).
"Provisions that recognize the rules for regulating the activities of bloggers as invalid come into force from the date of the official publication of the federal law. In this regard, Roskomnadzor ceased to maintain the bloggers' register," the report said.
In particular, Article 10.2 of the Law On Information, Information Technologies and Information Protection and Article 1 (2) of the Federal Law of 05.05.2014 No. 97-FZ On Amendments to the Federal Law On Information, Information Technologies and Information Protection and separate legislative acts on the regulation of information exchange using information and telecommunications networks are repealed.
At the same time, the agency drew attention to the fact that "users of the network publishing author's content are required to comply with the requirements of other legislative acts relating to the collection, processing and dissemination of information."
Since August 1, 2014 the law, according to which sites with a attendance of more than three thousand users per day should be included in the relevant registry, which is maintained by Roskomnadzor, came into force in Russia. August 30, 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law, in particular, abolishing the register.
