Abstract

The article examines the peculiarities and problems of implementing such a method of protecting honor, dignity and business reputation as deleting information from the Internet. This method is one of the new special ways of protection, captured in the Civil Code of the Russian Federation in 2013 by the Federal Law «On Amending Subsection 3 of Section I of Part One of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation». We analyzed Constitutional Court Ruling of the Russian Federation from 09.07.2013 № 18-P, which explained how to identify potential defendants when implementing this method of protection, since there is a question of who to prosecute, provided that it is impossible to identify the person who spread defamatory information in the Internet. The liability of individuals incurs regardless of whether the website is registered as a mass media or not. The nature of the above mentioned liability has been examined, as well as the possibility of taking measures to impose injunctive relief, which can curb the dissemination of defamatory information until a final decision is taken on the litigation. The article examines newly adopted normative legal acts that directly regulate the application and the further mechanism for implementing such a method of protection as the removal of information from the Internet. The article presents current court rulings linked to the protection methods investigated, states practical and theoretical problems of their application, proposes changes to the current legislation to eliminate existing deficiencies in the legal regulation of protecting the honor, dignity and business reputation of citizens.
