The world’s known BitTorrent tracker took part in the online protest against Hungary’s new media legislation that observers say would require journalists to discover their sources. Besides, bloggers would be forced to register with the government.


The Pirate Bay became just one of many websites that decided to participate in “Blackout for Hungary” protest against the Hungarian controversial new media legislation that took effect in 2011.

In short, the legislation creates a new regulatory panel – the National Media and Communications Authority, which has the right to monitor all kinds of media for signs of “offensive” reporting. It also has the power to threaten those journalists or news outlets that refuse to comply with fines.

The industry observers claim that the new law will increase government regulation of the web, forcing all bloggers to register with the government. Lots of websites have gathered for the “Blackout for Hungary” in protest.

“Blackout for Hungary” website said that the participants black out their online presence for at least 24 hours in order to show their concern for basic rights and free speech. Meanwhile, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe agreed that the legislation will severely restrict all kinds of media, which doesn’t comply with its standards. The organization’s representatives said that regulating online media is technologically impossible in the first place, and it also exerts a self-censoring effect on free speech.

In respond, the government’s state secretary announced that the new legislation will never cover private blogs if they don’t provide “mass information.” In addition, he defended the application of the law regulations to online and printed media, saying that the TV content is also available on the channel’s site. The same happens with all printed content, which becomes available online as well. If those “basic” rules aren’t enforced uniformly for all outlets, there will be loopholes in the regulation.

At the same time the industry members fear that the new law would force media to disclose their confidential sources. Some other member countries are criticizing the legislation as violating the freedom of the press – for example, the German government has limited Hungary’s role in negotiations during its European Union presidency for “failing to represent European values”.
