With the regulation, administrative fines are to be given to the providers who fail to fulfill their obligations, this fee will increase over time. Turkey is at number 15 of the countries who spend the most time daily using the internet.
According to the regulation, a new definition of the terrminology “social network provider” is brought to the law. In this context, real or legal entities that enable users to create, view or share content such as text, image, sound, and location for social interaction will be defined as a “social network provider”.
Administrative fines can also be reported by the Information Technologies and Communication Authority (BTK) directly to the addresses of violators abroad or via e-mail or other communication tools. Information stored by the fascist dictatorship about the violators of AKP’s online despotism includes means of communication, domain names, IP addresses and “other resources”.
This law was passed in accordance with the Notification Law, which means it is given a 5 day trial period before becoming law.
