The court ordered Lurkomorye to remove the scandalous photo of Syutkin: Kommersant spoke with the founder of the project

    On December 9, 2014, reported that Roskomnadzor filed a lawsuit with the Meshchansky District Court of Moscow against the Lurkomorye portal. The site has been using the photograph of singer Valery Syutkin for several years to illustrate in the article about the BBPE meme.

    According to Kommersant, the court upheld the lawsuit and now the project management is obliged to remove the “problematic” photo. If the site does not take measures within 33 days, it will be entered into a single register of banned Internet resources.

    The editorial office of Kommersant FM radio station contacted Dmitry Homak, the founder of Lurkomorye, and found out his opinion about what was happening. "Megamind" gives the most interesting statements of the founder of "Lurk".

    About the court decision

    I know about this court decision in the same way as everyone from the press. This, of course, is a shame on the part of this court.
    Because in this article on the Internet there is nothing specific about Syutkin, she tells about where this meme came from. It was not we who invented it, the article is exactly that this is a piece of the history of the Internet. There is such a Streisand effect, when you try to ban information, everyone will know about it: we have these pictures, a little disguised, already shown on all the central channels over the past few months.

    On the fate of Runet

    There is nothing to change here. The state is trying to somehow roll up the Internet so that there is nothing bad, offensive, wrong - anything that the state considers unnecessary. This is very bad, because it greatly hinders the Internet from developing. That is, there is no separate Russian Internet, there has never been, but now this whole story with information sovereignty speaks of what needs to be done as the state says, because the state says so. This is not a good idea.

    About counterclaims

    We did not come up with this picture. She was there everywhere, all over the Internet, we just collected an article about her where we write that Syutkin has nothing to do with it. This is our main complaint, that is, I would very much like to block the picture - well, try, of course, this is the Internet, it will not work out well for you. But to block our historical information is somehow not very even from the point of view of history.

    Who are the judges?

    Officials and people who are close to them do not understand the Internet and want to make it simple, understandable: state search, public services, state database and search engine, so that everything is state-owned, that everything is on behalf and on behalf of the state without these your funny jokes.
