Roskomnadzor blocked the SoundCloud music service in Russia

Roskomnadzor at the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation restricted access in Russia to the SoundCloud music distribution and podcast service site. This is indicated by the data registry departments to check the blocking of pages and resources in Russia.

The department considered that the SoundCloud service violated Article 15.3 of the Law “On Information”, which regulates the restriction of access to information with calls for riots and participation in unauthorized actions, extremism, as well as restriction of access to unreliable socially significant information. According to available data, access to such information is restricted based on the request of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation or his deputies.

Although the Roskomnadzor registry states that access is limited to the soundcloud.com page, blocking one page with the https network protocol can make the entire site inaccessible to users from Russia. Recall that the SoundCloud service, founded in 2007, distributes music, podcasts and other sound information. The company’s headquarters is located in Germany.
