    The manifest states that it is necessary to recognize as legal private non-commercial file sharing on the Web and to expand the concept of free use of works for personal non-commercial purposes (fair use) ,legislatively consolidate the effect of free licenses in Russia (Creative Commons and General Public License), reduce copyright term: minimum program - up to 50 years from the date of the author’s death, maximum program - up to 15-20 years from the date of publication of the work , prohibit the use of DRM , as well as submit to public discussion a number of other equally important proposals. In the future, on its basis will be presented a more detailed concept of reforming copyright in the digital age.

    The manifesto and the concept are discussed at the PPR forum , where everyone is invited to offer their edits, share their opinions or make criticisms. Some theses of the manifesto will form the basiscreated by API and PPR video .
