Информационно-правовые меры по ограничению доступа к информации в сети интернет и зарождение нового вида ответственности

Information is a viable power, since the one who owns information, owns the world. Internet sets new challenges for the legislator to control the dissemination of information.  Website blocking injunctions become primary means preventing the dissemination of undesired content. Legislator provides the internet intermediaries’ liability exemptions for illegal content dissemination. As the result, law scientists widely discuss the doctrine of safe harbor for internet providers, whilst an issue of website owners’ liability attracted less attention. This paper analyses website blocking injunctions from the perspective of website owners’ rights limitation. The author concludes that limitations of website owners’ rights due to website blocking injunctions constitute a new kind of liability.
