    Vote AGAINST the law here www.roi.ru/11762




    Yesterday I wrote ( More than three not to be collected: Blogs will need to be registered ) about the wonderful amendment of the State Duma which was to equate a personal Blog to the media.

    Today, the State Duma formally adopted the amendment in the second reading.

    What specifically accepted, what to fear, what to do ?!
    Please note that the law takes effect on August 1, 2014. there is still time

    In the last post, many doubted that the law would be adopted, but it was expected that it would be adopted.

    What changed?


    - A new group of Internet users - bloggers - has been created.

    Who is a blogger?


    The owner of a site or a page of a site on the Internet, on which publicly available information is posted and which has more than three thousand Internet users for 24 hours

    Important: It does not matter which page, your business card, blog, VKontakte page, twitter, youtube channel, or something else, any site with an audience of more than 3000 per day and which can be called "personal" can be attributed to the operation of this law.
    (Simply put - any site)

    I have over 3,000 visitors, what should I do ?!


    Be prepared to get into the registry, there is an alternative - ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Press_Freedom_Index

    What does getting into the registry give?

    Entering the register will oblige blog owners to verify the accuracy of the information posted, comply with the rules of election campaigning, not disseminate information about the privacy of citizens, do not distribute extremist materials, indicate age restrictions for users.

    Simply put:
    1) When you enter the site you should have a notification - the site is intended for an audience of 21+
    2) If you are going to publish: information about privacy, prohibited materials, extremist or knowingly false (WHAT ?!) then you can do it through a link to another resource - in the darknet you can choose Tor / I2P or even MAGNET if these are just files for downloading

    How to leave / not get into the registry?


    1) Have traffic below 3000 for three months
    2) Transfer your website to a dark redirecting all traffic there, leaving only instructions on the main
    3) Blocking access from Russian IP addresses to the site by hanging a stub with bypass routes

    What are the real consequences?


    Good

    - A new lever of pressure has appeared on bloggers spreading knowingly false information that undermines the foundations of the Soviet Union of the Russian Federation
    The bad

    1) Small business will get worse than it was
    2) Decided to write an interesting report on the train abroad? did something interesting and decided to tell everyone?
    - Think, now you can get into the registry of bloggers, which may create some difficulties for you in the future.
    3) Freedom of speech
    4) Blocking any foreign website has become even easier than before, the registry, the courts, far-fetched pretexts, why this is, he is a Blogger, and still not registered.
    5) The foundation is being prepared for the introduction of white lists
    6) A mechanism of self-censorship among citizens is being formed (War - Peace, Freedom - Slavery)

    What to do then?


    - Unfortunately, I can’t give an answer to this question, let's wait for the reaction of the pirate party and similar organizations, maybe they will be able to take action to protest.

    I want to read / write what I think is necessary, and I do not want to get into the Register, WHAT DO I DO ?!


    I repeat:
    1) Tor www.torproject.org/index.html
    2) I2P geti2p.net/en
    3) Twister twister.net.co (https://github.com/iShift/twister-webkit/releases/latest)

    В At the end of the Runet post, I suggest you look at the joyful Internet users who are happy with the new amendments and have already stood in the queue for registration:
