MOSCOW, December 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Coordinating Centre /CC/ of the .ru domains and a division of the League of Secure Internet, Friendly Runet, have drawn an agreement in counteracting distribution of illegal information on the Internet, CC’s press service reported on Tuesday.
“Thus, the Coordinating Centre has chosen the first competent organisation, which will supply to it and registrars of domain names information about resources with illegal content,” the press service said.
According to new rules of registration of domain names in the .ru and .rf /in Cyrillic script/ zones, registrars will be able to stop delegating domain names for such resources as they receive applications from the League of Secure Internet.
The League of Secure Internet is a most effective civil organisation, which fights negative content on the net. Over past ten months, it received over 20,000 applications about the Internet resources containing children’s pornography. As the information was processed, over 8,000 Internet pages containing illegal materials were closed.
During 2011, the Coordinating Centre received over 40 complaints from users, where they asked to stop delegating certain domain names. All complaints were forwarded to registrars of domain names, as the Coordinating Centre does not have authorities to terminate the delegating itself.
