FOIA requests for blocking porn websites in Romania
Fri 28 Jul 2017, 14:20
ApTI submitted access to information requests to the National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) with regard to the application of Law 196/2003 on combating pornography. Porn website owners have to charge a tax per minute view and declare the income to the fiscal authorities. From ANCOM's response, most of the requests sent to ISPs date from 2011. As ANCOM's response indicates a confusion between ISP blocking and requesting Internet hosting services to delete the website, ApTI submitted another FOIA request to clarify this aspect.
