MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. Representatives of all segments of Russia’s Internet industry plan by the end of this week to work out a letter to the country’s leaders urging to adopt laws “helping, but not restricting” the industry, Russian Internet ombudsman Dmitry Marinichev told TASS on Tuesday after his meeting with representatives of the Internet community.
The meeting yielded a decision to set up an expert council to analyze current legislative initiatives. “The council has actually begun its work. It has been set up on the basis of the office of the Internet ombudsman to aggregate positions of the entire industry on legislative initiatives,” Marinichev said.
He said that the council would incorporate professional associations rather than individual companies.
“We need right laws that would be coordinated with representatives of the industry. So far, most of the laws are of prohibitive character,” he said, adding that he hoped future laws regulating the Internet would take into account the opinion of the new expert council. “I hope in the long run we will be able to bridge the gap between wishes, needs and possibilities,” he noted.
According to Marinichev, the council members had already arrived at a common position on a number of normative acts. Thus, he said, the Internet community insisted on revocation of a resolution demanding identification of Wi-Fi users in public places and on postponement of the law binding to store personal data of Russian Internet users in the territory of Russia.
