Internet Bullies Tackled connects to the TV format in which Peter R. de Vries exposes internet bullies. The website hosts a petition: by filling out a name, surname, address and date of birth, the visitor votes for a new law: internet victims have the right to personal data of their anonymous perpetrators. Voters can choose to make their name publicly visible. Already, more than 100,000 people signed the petition.
Anonymous internet bullies are currently protected by internetproviders. They remain untraceable to their desperate and sometimes terrified victims. The providers hide behind the Privacy Act and the terms and conditions on their own website. Enabling a lawyer or judge takes a lot of time and money - without guarantee of success. Crime reporter Peter R. de Vries took the initiative for this petition.
