Law Tightening Internet Use In Belarus Goes Into Effect

A law restricting the use of the Internet by Belarusian firms and state institutions has come into force. One aspect of the law, seen as the most invasive, requires Internet cafes and service providers to identify and keep track of all of their clients along with the web pages they visit. Thirty-five websites are banned for Internet users at state institutions, including the pages of "Charter'97.org" and "Belarusian Partisan." Belarusian companies are required to use the Belarusian Internet domain -- .by -- in order to sell goods or services within Belarus.
