RAO zhzhot again



    It would seem that it could be more absurd than taking money from artists for performing their own songs , or from veterans, for performing songs of the war years . But no, RAO once again pleases us with a fresh portion of delusionality on the front of "protection" of copyrights. I don’t know who made them up, but they were fined 30 thousand rubles ... a cinema in the Sverdlovsk region, which did not pay the fee to the authors of music for films . Yes, yes, no mistake.

    According to the agency, since December 2009, the movie "Avatar", "Book of Eli", "Alvin and the Chipmunks-2", "Sherlock Holmes" and "Black Lightning" were shown at the cinema in Kamensk-Uralsky - without paying remuneration to the music authors for films. The Kamensk-Uralsky prosecutor’s office found out that the screening of films was based on agreements with copyright holders - Universal Pictures International LLC, Twentieth Century Fock CIS LLC.

    Meanwhile, the cinema did not conclude agreements on the payment of remuneration to the authors of music that sounded in films, although by law it was supposed to conclude such agreements, the department claims.

    “By the decision of the justice of the peace, the cinema was found guilty of an administrative offense, as provided for in paragraph 1 of Article 7.12 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (violation of copyright and related rights). The organization was sentenced to a fine of 30 thousand rubles, ”the report said.

    Three cinema projectors and reels with films were also withdrawn from the cinema, the report said.

    The court ruling has not yet entered into legal force, the report said.
    Quote from Ryanovskoy There is a

    It would be very funny if it were not so sad. Here it is, the absolute absurdity of our copyright laws. What will "please" us with RAO yet?
