Yesterday, Finland became the first country in the world, has issued a new law civil law: July 1, there came into effect a law that guarantees the public the right of access to the Internet. Now the Internet traffic legally no different from the provision of postal and telephone services. But in Belarus since yesterday thrown back online: In accordance with the decree of the "improvement of the national segment" significantly enhanced user control in Internet clubs, introduced mandatory state registration of sites, and providers need to store all the information about their customers.
State Inspection Telecommunication announced the extension of registration of Internet resources. As predicted by hosting providers to meet the deadlines set aside by the state to legalize tens of thousands of sites, it was impossible to start. According to the agency, now under consideration has more than 5,000 applications, but the number is already registered resource is not specified.
Why are active in the registration of a lot less than expected? The procedure automatically provides the transition to the Belarusian hosting, which is much more expensive. Firms that have so far proved Belarusian companies hosting services with a residence permit in Russia, offering server rentals and 1000 gigabytes of foreign traffic in less than 1 million rubles. In the transition to the Belarusian service costs are increasing by 2-2.5 times when traffic is 5-7 times less. Belarusian hosting recognize disappointing arithmetic, but they say that in the current circumstances can not be otherwise:
"When it comes to dedicated servers, you have to understand, first, we have borrowed money due to the above, secondly, the price of equipment from customs duties are also higher. Therefore, placing the customer, offer to lease servers, we can only expensive than it is in Russia, and certainly a fortiori — in the West. That is, if we take into account certain objective circumstances, such an assertion is correct. As for the virtual comparison with the same Russian, this claim is not entirely correct: it all depends on the reliability and reputation of the hosting provider. "
The state registration of online resources provided by the Council of Ministers № 644 and the presidential decree number 60. And this applies not only to legal persons of mixed ownership and individual entrepreneurs, but also government agencies. They, in particular, should translate their addresses in the blast zone and gov.by mil.by. However, the day after the entry into force of regulations or one ministry can not boast of timely implementation of such. However, as the representative of the Ministry of Sport and Tourism Vitaly Semashko In this case, all the questions — in part to the initiators of this requirement, as the technical part of the government organizations met:
"Send out a package of documents that need to be filled for the junction. including there were various additional questions. This package of documents was completed and sent back to the "Beltelekom." And now they have them in any clear terms to put us in another blast zone. But I think that it's not even they inhibit the process, because I do not think it's so hard to move things quickly. Maybe it's trying to lead a unified form, because sites in all state bodies are totally different, in many ways it works on different platforms. So maybe try to bring order to a common and already exhibit. At least until we officially do not come. "
Internet users have questioned a number of innovations identified by the decree number 60. First of all, Internet service providers are required to carry out the identification of subscriber devices, keep a record of the services rendered and store information about them that puts an end to anonymity Belarusian network.
In addition, the decree for the first time regulates the mechanism for restricting access to information. So, at the request of the relevant authorities, or the user must stop provider of traffic. Responsible for enforcement of regulations insist that this is done in the public interest. Said a spokesman for the Ministry of Communications and Information Sergey Rudnev:
"It is envisaged to provide the customer service to restrict access to information, which is prohibited by law, or to the information that the user does not want to see at the screen. On the part of the provider will be presented to the appropriate service, to ensure restriction of unwanted information."
Fundamentally new rules came into effect on visitors to an internet cafe and computer clubs. Now without documents proving identity, nothing to do here: the computer users allowed, only rewriting all the data in the register.
