Brazilian Civil Rights Framework for the Internet takes effect on June 23



The Brazilian Civil Rights Framework for the Internet will enter into effect on June 23. The Law nº 12.965 sanctioned in April by President Dilma Rouseff establishes rights and duties in the use of the Internet in Brazil. The regulation determinates the secrecy of communication of all Internet users, transparency in service contracts and net neutrality.

According to the MGTI advisor and Vice President of Sucesu Minas, Leonardo Bortoletto, the law enforcement is extremely relevant for the entire population and brings positive changes to Internet users in Brazil.

The three fundamental pillars that will guide the Internet usage in the country are the net neutrality, privacy and withdrawal of content. “Regarding the network neutrality, the text predicts that no company will be able to create barriers for any type of content and benefit partner companies with a financial interest. The privacy establishes that all Internet users have secrecy over their confidential data. The withdrawal of content settles the freedom of expression on the web”, explains Bortoletto.

A survey conducted by the global agency Burrson-Marsteler has analysed the feeling and reaction of the population on the approval of the new regulation in social networks, blogs and online media. According to the study, the project counts with the support of 69% of Internet users, which shows great endorse in relation to Civil Rights Framework adoption.
