Roskomnadzor began to punish online cinemas for swearing and sex in films
Roskomnadzor drew up the first protocol to the online cinema Megogo for swearing and sex in films
Roskomnadzor suspected the online cinema Megogo of an administrative offense due to incorrect labeling of a Russian film posted on a streaming platform that exploits the topic of sex and uses mat. This was reported by the Vedomosti newspaper.
According to the publication, Roskomnadzor invited a representative of the Megogo platform to draw up a protocol under Part 1 of Article 19.7.10-2 of the Administrative Code. The reason was the incorrect labeling of the Russian film “Nobody Knows About Sex”, which, despite the obscene language and frank themes, was on the platform marked “16+” and not the recommended “18+”.
It is known that the amount of the fine to the head of the Megogo service can range from 200 to 400 thousand rubles. If it is written out to the legal entity itself, then the amount may increase to 600 thousand or a million rubles.
On the eve of Roskomnadzor reported that over the year, the owners of Russian audiovisual services were sent in total almost 40 requests to eliminate the violations of the law, including for the lack of social advertising about the dangers of tobacco consumption when showing feature films.
