Regulation is required, regardless of whether the responsibility falls on the platforms themselves, or on the government
Regulation is already in place <...> Any content – even the most viral, even the most insignificant – is bound by certain conditions. We are not bound by media law, but we are bound by criminal and administrative codes, and can be easily regulated by these. Platforms have their rules in place, their restrictions, and are within their rights to impose them. And as bloggers, we accept their rules of the game. Of course, they consult with us – something which I am very grateful for. All in all, this regulation is more than sufficient, although it is worth working on further, because content is constantly evolving one way or another. But there must be no regulation from the government — Bogdan Bulychev, YouTube and Instagram Blogger; Author, About Travel Channel (@bogdee).
It seems to me that there needs to be some kind of organization to monitor content. <...> A huge amount of content has appeared, along with an enormous number of bloggers, and it’s vital to get more people involved in viewing videos and differentiating high-quality content from content which should absolutely not be put out to the masses — Alexander Zarubin, Instagram Blogger (@sashka_stone), Athlete, and Musician.
I would not object to there being state regulators <...> or professional communities or bloggers’ associations of some kind – it doesn’t matter. What matters most of all is that all these task forces find common ground — Yulia Mihaleva, Deputy Director, Russian Quality System (Roskachestvo).
