Turkey is Ready to Take Some Steps Against Online Crime

Some European countries such as the UK and Italy have already taken some regulatory steps to deal with online casinos that seem to be illegal or indecent for their citizens. And their legislation has proved to be effective.

As, it has been reported by the leading Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak, some measures will be taken by the Turkish Government as well. The expansion of Penal Code Article 301 (online crime) is being planned now. As a result Turkey’s Security Agency will get the right to block any illegal from their point of view site. Moreover, Internet Service Providers will have to block them as well. Besides, some legal action will be taken against the owners of the offending sites in case they can be reached.

Many critics claim that this Act will hardly prove to be affective, since many find censoring offensive. And this is the thing the situation in Turkey may be compared with.
