The Eastern European country of Belarus, already known for censorship and severe limitations on internet usage, is set to make its citizens’ web access even more restricted. On January 6th, a law will go into effect that makes it illegal for Belarusian citizens or residents to visit any foreign websites. Furthermore, businesses or individuals may not provide services through domains not registered in Belarus, and owners of internet cafes or other such businesses can face charges if they don’t monitor and report any violations of this law. This last provision even applies to individual citizens hosting guests in their home — if someone hits a foreign website, the computer’s owner is bound by law to report it, or face charges himself.
