Forums covered by the bill would have to conduct an authentication of their users, Bluemel told a news conference after a cabinet meeting.
If the law pass -> ... we are screwed...“That means that if someone wants to post something in these forums, they will have to go through a registration process that at the end of the day must mean that if a court asks ‘Who is this person?’, it is possible to tell who they are,”
Also it only applies to sites with over 100,000 users - define users. This site has 403,000 members but how many actual users - my guess, from observation, would be around 200 - 300. The other criteria is to have over 500,000 Euros income in Austria, something I doubt many, if any, phpBB boards will have... verify their users’ identity so that individuals can be tracked down if they post hate speech online anonymously
That just goes to show how reliable IP’s are for accurate location information or even people filling in the correct information when asked.
You have 2 members. Even if you run a site for 10 years getting 10 people a day signing up you still won't get to 100,000 members. I wouldn't worry about it.The measure, part of a bill that has yet to be submitted to parliament, will apply only to larger platforms, defined as those with have more than 100,000 users or 500,000 euros ($560,000) in revenue in Austria
I am in a German Speaking VoIP Forum who have more than 100.000 Registered User. I dont know how the define Guest/ non Registered User because 10 Guest Comment -> 10 different People. ...Also it only applies to sites with over 100,000 users - define users.
nope I never sayed that.Your location seems to indicate Vietnam?
The point is the have to implement that into an upcoming Software Version. Not for me personally for everyone elese who will fall into that!You have 2 members.
You dont know how insane our politician are. ...and may never be
The Software must Support that a Admin could handle that.and secondly it is not a software issue but a site owner issue.
You are missing the point. A site owner runs the site in accordance with the laws of the country that are relevant at that time. Software is something that the site owner decides to install on his site - whether that software complies with the law is something that the site owner has to make a decision about.
