No Longer Anonymous?

Fighting Anonymity

Fighting Anonymity

Hiding behind a nickname and exploiting the fact of being anonymous on the internet in order to violate the good reputation and rights of other people cannot remain unpunished. Administrators of websites, where users can add comments and opinions, may be asked to disclose users’ personal data, for example, their IP addresses. This may happen when users using a nickname slander, affront, or offend other people. The obligation to protect personal data cannot take precedence over the right of people who are attacked and slandered. They have the right to defend their good name. In fact, administrators who deal with the personal data of users should not use the regulations of the Act on Rendering Electronic Services of 18 July, 2002 (Journal of Laws 2013, 1422) as an excuse to withhold personal data and under no circumstances should agree to disclose data of slandering users to natural persons.
