MOSCOW, January 3. /TASS/. Amendments to the law "On information, information technologies and information protection" and to a number of articles of Civil Processual Code of the Russian Federation, also known as the law on "the right for oblivion" took effect on January 1.
Now any Russian citizen may apply to a search engine operating within the territory of the Russian Federation with a request to delete links to private information while the searcher may decide either on deletion of the links or on refusal after considering the application. In this case the applicant may further turn to the court.
The law does not limit access to resources, which directly publish private information.
Russia’s Minister of Communications and Mass Media Nikolai Nikiforov assumes Russia’s search engines will deal with execution of the new law on "the right for oblivion", which does not require special technical background, though he admitted this will be an additional operational burden for companies.
