    Since the launch of the IP possession function on Weibo, Tiktok, xiaohongshu and other platforms, the business of paid IP agents has been booming. Search on the Internet and you can modify the IP possession for as little as a few yuan. Who is keen to use this service and whether it violates the law to modify the gray industry in the IP territory? Recently, lawyer Deng Xu of JAVY law firm was interviewed by Beijing Radio and television station 1039 News Morning Post, and gave a detailed interpretation of this event.




    On April 15 this year, six major Internet content platforms including today's headlines and Tiktok announced "open account IP territory". Then on April 28, Sina Weibo opened a full range of comments to show the IP territorial function of sending comments; The first level page of the online personal home page displays the IP dependency function. The new function of disclosing IP territories has quickly produced a "Butterfly Effect" on the network. Many bloggers have started to change their names and profiles.

    Relevant experts said that the IP address, like the house number of each household, is fixed and unique. Some experts said that the IP address is different from the territory. This time, the public IP territory is only displayed in the province, so it generally does not involve the user's personal privacy. Some sellers said that the number of people looking for IP agents has indeed increased recently. The services they sell can change the IP address of mobile phones or computers, and support all platforms and all brands of mobile phones.

    At present, some platforms have cleaned up and compressed the ash trading space by shielding keyword search and other technical means. This shows that the platform has the responsibility and ability to manage relevant illegal acts, but users also have to bear relevant legal responsibilities.

    Clarifying the IP territory and raising the responsibility threshold of network speech can effectively avoid some violations and even network violence. This is also a balanced choice between public interests and individual rights and interests. So in law, does the so-called IP agency violate the rules by purchasing false IP addresses?

    If the agent industry that modifies IP leaks personal information or IP address and other data, it is an administrative illegal act. If it also affects the normal operation of the computer system, and the consequences or circumstances are serious, it is also suspected of the crime of destroying the computer information system. The seller's illegal operation of the IP agent industry, which seriously disrupts the market order, may be suspected of the crime of non illegal operation.

    At the same time, the IP address modification industry also provides great convenience for cyber crime. If the seller knows that others use the network to commit crimes, but also provides corresponding technical support for them to modify the IP address and other services, if the circumstances are serious, it is suspected of helping the information network criminal activities.


    Lawyer Deng Xu reminded that although there is no relevant punishment for ordinary Internet users to use IP proxy to surf the Internet, using proxy IP still has certain risks.

    There is still a great risk for netizens to use this kind of IP proxy personally. From the perspective of network security, there must be no guarantee, and they may also be attacked by hackers. Once the criminals have obtained these personal information, they are likely to be used in cyber criminal activities, resulting in the loss of personal and property safety of Internet users.

    If some netizens modify their IP addresses in the civil activities of live broadcast and online marketing of goods, so that consumers have some wrong ideas about the relevant products or services of netizens, then such modification is likely to constitute civil fraud, and may even be suspected of fraud and bear criminal responsibility.

    It shows that network IP is of great benefit to purify the network environment and curb cyber crime. It is also hoped that the majority of ordinary Internet users will resist this IP proxy industry.



    For false information in cyberspace, such as false propaganda, rumor information, telecommunications fraud, etc., the platform's initiative to disclose IP territories is conducive to purifying the network environment. However, if some people with ulterior motives want to create a "fake scene" by changing the IP territory, such acts of tampering with personal information and background data must bear corresponding legal responsibilities.
