What Five Principles of Free Internet Medvedev Named;

The internet has not only positives, but also negative sides. Some users of the World Wide Web abuse its capabilities, posting empty, contentless comments (so-called flame), or even at all insulting, provoking other users. This behavior is called trolling. Even worse is when various bloggers post unverified, erroneous, if not outright defamatory information, the consequences of which can be quite sad. Unfortunately, there are many examples of this. Therefore, in the light of recent events, when libel again became a criminal offence, there was a very serious question: how to deal with libel spread over the Internet? What rules should be in effect on the World Wide Web (at least on the territory of Russia)?

Prime Minister of Russia D. A. Medvedev recently named five principles on which the work of the internet should be built.

1st principle. The internet should be free. That is, about the introduction of harsh censorship, which is feared by the Russian opposition, there is no speech.

2nd principle. It is necessary to develop clear and clear rules that should guide every user of the Internet. That is, it is necessary to observe the “golden middle”: on the one hand, to prevent anarchy and permissiveness; on the other hand, to avoid unnecessary complication. From the point of view of D.A. Medvedev, it will be difficult to achieve this, but it is necessary to strive for.

3rd principle. All the work of the internet should be aimed at ensuring that anyone can get the information they need, while at the same time being protected from malicious content of sites. For example, those that promote pedophilia, drug abuse, national or religious hatred, etc.

4th principle. Copyright rules must be strictly enforced on the Internet.

5th principle. All kinds of violations on the Internet should be combated only through legal ways, in strict accordance with current legislation and generally accepted international practice.
