What is the relationship between Ņem droši! and the EU portal agorateka?



Ņem droši! is a national portal containing lists of websites that offer digital content legally. It is linked to a portal at European level, called agorateka, which encompasses national portals from a variety of participating European countries, most notably the Member States of the European Union.

Ņem droši! is a national portal, that is hosted by the Ministry of Culture. The portal was created to provide a trustable, simple and fast access to legal content available for consumers in Latvia.

Together with other national portals, Ņem droši! is contained within agorateka, the EU portal to Legal Offer websites. Some of the national portals have been created by the public bodies of the participating country, others exist due to collaborations between public entities and private sector organisations, and again others are from the private sector and have been included, by the participating country, to be present in the portal.

The fact that a website providing access to the digital content covered is not listed in a national portal does not necessarily mean that this site is illegal. Such a website might be still unknown to the national portal, it might not wish to be listed or it might have applied to be listed with the validation procedure still ongoing.
