New bill seeks to make web sites legally responsible for talkback content
By SHEERA CLAIRE FRENKEL
Web site owners or editors will be legally responsible for any content on their site, including comments made in talkbacks and message boards, a bill passed on Sunday by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation states.
According to the bill, which was drafted by MK Israel Hasson (Israel Beiteinu) web sites could be absolved of liability if they agree to reveal the details of posters.
While the bill still needs to be approved in three readings in the Knesset plenum, receiving the support of the Ministerial Committee on Legislation gives it a much higher chance of passing into law.
And you still asking me why I don't vote for "russkis"? In Israel an ethnic party is always a blend of two evils. Arab parties mix anti-Israel nationalism with communism or similar way-too-left-to-be-sane ideology, Sefardic "Shas" uses religion and socialism, Liberman & Co - nationalism and abuse of state power. Neither of them actually help their voters. And all of them are inevitably corrupt to the bone.
By the way, I don't think that the bill will pass. But I am deeply sick of my origin. Not ashamed, mind it. Just sick.
