Austria: Less anonymity for Internet users?

Internet users, who are writing hate comments, are to be in Austria in the future, identifiable - a law draft presented by the government. Critics say he was going at the Problem in the past.

media Minister Gernot Blümel of the Chancellor's party, ÖVP explaining the logic of the projects behind the new law: "The digital space is allowed to be a law-free zone. We need to make the digitisation for the people and the recognition of the fundamental principles of the state. This is done today is a significant step."

the so-called "Federal law on care and responsibility in the network", presented by the right-wing conservative Austrian government today, as the design is Meant to be. It aims to insults and hate Postings on the Internet, and provides that operators of websites, names and addresses need to store a registered user in the future. Postings can then be written still under the fantasy name - the authorities can access when needed, but on the identity of the user. Companies that do not comply can face a fine up to 500,000 euros.

How to identify your users, to stay with the company, says media Minister Blümel. "We have intentionally left the way this authentication is open, because it will soon be available, perhaps cheaper and better options. But in the notes we have posted that this is supposed to be, for example, by means of mobile phone number, an SMS Code, and confirmation."
