The state Duma adopted in the first reading the law on news aggregators
In the current version remained such requirements as are pre-moderated and some others, for which the bill was subjected to intense criticism. We will remind, in February in the state Duma introduced amendments to the law “On information, information technologies and about information protection” and the Code of administrative offences of the Russian Federation, which can radically change the rules of news aggregators like Google. The greatest disagreement was expressed with the requirement to “verify the accuracy of distributed socially significant information”, that is, the aggregator was responsible for the publication, even if it is reprinted verbatim, whereas for the media in this case, the responsibility of the author notes. For some services, such as Yandex.News, this requirement makes impossible the continuation of work in the form in which they now exist.
In early April, Leonid Levin, head of the Duma Committee on Informatica, information technology and communications, told reporters that the need for pre-moderation will be removed from the bill. This decision was made after key companies-aggregators provided comments and feedback on this legislative initiative. As expected, the law could be finally passed by the Parliament in may.
