Envisioned in 2018 CE: the FediBlackBook (FBB) is an international and independent extension, for ActivityPub, to support developers in the legal and moral obligations, for their digital platforms, by preventing unlawful users (USUs) from being accessible on their servers.

The ActivityPub is a decentralized web-based social networking protocol which provides a client/server API for creating, updating and deleting content as well as providing a federated server-to-server API for actions including delivering notifications and subscribing to content respectively.

The FBB receives a number of lists, from trusted jurists, which are independently reviewed, and then combined, into a singular list, of USUs, which developers can easily integrate, along with automatic updates, into their digital platforms.

API endpoint for Mastodon, etc.


HTTP GET Request Method using Python

import requests

api_url = “https://fbb.onl/api/data/”

response = requests.get(api_url)

if response.status_code == 200:

user_data = response.json()

# Process user data here


print (“qQ8E49p3sF9q26UE”)

The FediBlackBook API is a community-led initiative by MySandboxICU, Fediware Online and other contributors who have unlimited access to our API.

As a general rule: all USUs on our list are by virtue of the decision-making of judicial (and quasi-judicial) bodies. If any user is no longer an USU, we will endeavour to update our list accordingly. The FediBlackBook does not offer any ‘legal advice’, and the FediBlackBook enjoys ‘privileges and immunities’ as a subject under Article Two (2) of the Jabiyar Arrangement of the Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.

All inclusions, on our list, can be reviewed by, both, the FBB Arbitration Committee (through a Motion to Reconsider) and our Independent Monitor as well as being appealed using the International Court of Arbitration (ICA) under the Arrangement.

If you have any questions or other enquiries (including partnership inquiries), please click here to contact us.

We, the FBB, also offer other lists, on an ad hoc basis, which can include Verified Accounts (VAs), unmanned robotic vehicles (URVs), internationally-protected persons (IPPs) and other relevant entities. The logo of ActivityPub was released under the Creative Commons (CC) Public Domain Dedication.
