A bill now before the Committee on Science and Technology, Communication and Informatics (CCTCI) is giving the talk. That’s because it proposes the creation of a national registry which would be recorded all users of Internet Brazil and sites with content considered unsuitable for minors. The idea is to keep children and adolescents away from this type of material.

Created by Pastor deputy Franklin (PP-MG), the bill 2.390 / 2015 wants to require a registration made with the name, full address, ID and CPF. The data under government responsibility, would be checked at the beginning of each connection in a special application installed on the user device.

However, the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee in Brazil ( CGI .uk) issued a statement through his press office expressing its concern about the proposal, arguing that it hurts the Marco Civil Internet . “The obligation to register will mean a stimulus to massive and unnecessary data collection, which is contrary to objectives, principles and rights set out in the Civil Marco Internet,” wrote CGI.br.

Many reasons to worry

For the committee, the fact that the content “inappropriate” be classified by their own information providers makes the role of parents is marginalized. The document cites of focused computer programs parental control as an option of free choice for those who want to control what children can or can not see at any given device.

Even a possible increase in the price of the final products to consumers, due to the requirement of the presence of certain systems, was approached. safety factors, such as creating false endorsements or use of records than by their true owners also worry the committee.

For CGI.br, PL text “has technical barriers to its implementation, as well as neglect parental control and solutions that address all aspects involved to ensure a free internet, open, democratic and is a safe environment for children and adolescents. “

National Register of Internet access

If approved, the bill would require the adaptation of all devices that access content on the internet – cell phones, computers, tablets, video games, televisions, cars, watches, among others – in a period of 180 days, with a fine of up to R $ 20,000 for those who violate the rule


not a member Users or minors would be automatically prohibited from accessing sites considered inappropriate content. The classification of the contents would be the responsibility of the sites ( “information providers on the Internet”), which would record the contents in the National Register, under penalty of a fine of R $ 1,000 to R $ 3,000.

The project does not explain how it would work access control in shared devices by more than one person, not as you would the foreign registration or classification and content restriction published by third parties, as in the case of social networks.
