The largest search engine Goggle is accused by Roskomnadzor of violating the law “On Information, Information Technologies and Protection of Information”.
According to the law, search engines should exclude from the issuance of prohibited sites that regularly violate the copyright of published materials. The list of web resources prohibited in the Russian Federation is available in the state register, to which Goggle should have connected a month ago and within three days start filtering the results of the issue. On October 25, Roskomnadzor notified Goggle about the need to connect to the registry over the next 30 days, but this did not happen after a month. We remind you that the law came into force in November 2017. In addition to prohibited sites, search engines are required to exclude from the issuance of extremist resources, child pornography, and the sale of drugs. Since June 2018, the penalty for failure to comply with the requirements for legal entities ranges from 500,000 to 700,000 rubles.
According to experts, Google may try to challenge the decision of Roskomnadzor, but there is practically no chance of winning the case.
