How long does Vkontakte live?

    Not so long ago, in mid-July, the first decision in two years was made in favor of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company. The court found that Vkontakte was obliged to moderate its service itself, remove counterfeit goods and pay VGTRK 1 million rubles for the illegal placement of the films Ostrov and Piranha Hunt.

    Following VGTRK, another copyright holder decided to sue Vkontakte social network - Aram Gabrelyanov Publishing House, News Media Rus (Life newspaper, Life News and Marker resources). Encouraged by a court decision in the VGTRK case, News Media Rus filed a lawsuit for 100 thousand rubles based on the unlawful use of its content, in particular videos.

    The lawsuit will be considered in mid-August by the Arbitration Court of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region. Case review information can be tracked on the case card.

    I remind you that the President of the Amedia group of companies, the largest Russian producer of television and film production, Alexander Akopov, announced his readiness to personally sue the users and the management of the VKontakte social network, where you can watch and listen to pirated copies of films and music for free albums.

    While Akopov threatens and waves his fists, News Media Rus and VGTRK are already operating.
    So the question is: when is Vkontakte filled up with lawsuits and how many social networks will stretch at such a pace?
