Unfortunately, the legislative and regulatory-legal base in the sphere of internet is not perfect. Thus, IAK’s primary aim was to attract maximum attention of community and state structures to this process. Being sure that internet is innovative and most prospective branch of economy of Kazakhstan, that’s why it is very important to direct development of Kaznet in civilized way, we addressed to mass media, NEP “Atameken”, Parliament of Kazakhstan, Agency of RK for Economic and Corruption-Related Crimes, General Prosecutor’s Office of Kazakhstan, Supreme Court of RK with a request to control and assist in its legal decision.
