Roskomnadzor drew up a protocol on non-compliance with the requirements of the regulator for the online cinema Megogo. About it report “Vedomosti” with reference to the appeal of the department.
According to the publication, the regulator called Megogo employees to draw up a protocol. The reason was the Russian comedy Nobody Knows About Sex. The agency found in the film “obscene language and exploitation of the topic of sex.” In addition, Roskomnadzor noted that the film has an age marking of 16+, although it should be 18+.
The film “Nobody Knows About Sex” was released in 2006. According to Viktor Chekanov, General Director of Megogo, when choosing the 16+ marking, the service was guided by the data of the rental certificate of the Ministry of Culture.
“What requirements we have not fulfilled is not yet entirely clear,” Chekanov added. He faces a fine of up to 400 thousand rubles, if the protocol is drawn up for a legal entity, then up to a million rubles.
Online cinemas ivi, Start and Kion also received letters demanding to limit mate and show less sex scenes.
Earlier, Megogo and the online cinemas Kinopoisk and ivi were fined 100 thousand rubles for the lack of markings about the dangers of smoking in TV shows.
