ISOC-CH Statement on Ordinance of Gambling Law
The Public Consultation on the Ordinance of the gambling law ended yesterday. ISOC-CH has submitted a statement expressing general concerns on network blocking and raised several issues with the ordinance in particular.
Mainly, the Ordinance is too general allowing all blocking methods from DNS Blocking to Deep Packet inspection (incl. crack encryption) as applied e.g. in China. Furthermore, ISOC-CH demands that blocking must not affect other webpages or services as a result of over-blocking. As it would be disproportional to enforce blocking duties also to small ISPs, ISOC-CH suggests to exempt small providers from network blocking.
