Legal Governance System of Illegal and Harmful Information on Internet and Its Perfection
Download as PDF
China has initially established a complete legal system for the governance of illegal and harmful information on the Internet, but there are still some problems, such as the unstable governance system, the unclear and proper specific governance rules, and the incomplete legal responsibility of network operators. Under the background of comprehensively promoting the rule of law, we must raise the governance of harmful information on the Internet to the level of rule of law; In view of the characteristics of the Internet's harmful information, such as the concealment of its transmission mode, the immediacy of its transmission time, the trans-boundary of its transmission space and the universality of its audience, the governance should follow the path of "comprehensive governance according to law". Facing the ever-changing network environment, its governance means should also be constantly adjusted. The management of harmful information in the Internet depends not only on the progress of computer science and technology, but also on the strong protection of law. It is an inevitable requirement of building a civilized and harmonious network environment to clarify the scope of harmful information on the network from legislation, take multiple measures simultaneously, and carry out governance for harmful information on the network. We should further consolidate and upgrade the status of the National Network Information Office, clarify the rules of illegal and harmful information governance, try out the hierarchical governance system of information content, further straighten out the legal responsibilities of network service providers, implement their security management obligations in information content, and improve the legal governance system of illegal and harmful information on the Internet in China as a whole. To effectively supervise and manage the spread of network information, it is necessary to regulate the harmful information on the Internet from the legal level, not to make the network world an "extra-legal space", and to make the network world run on the track of the rule of law.
