The right holders of the Russian Federation want to tighten anti-piracy laws after claims against Yandex

    On September 10, 2018, the Ministry of Culture published the draft law “On Amendments to Article 15.2 of the Federal Law“ On Information, Information Technologies and on Protection of Information ”” . We are talking about the article, according to which Roskomnadzor recently threatened to block the Yandex service in Russia. The new edition offers tougher deadlines for this procedure.

    After receiving the court decision Roskomnadzor is obliged to quickly block the resource. Instead of the current “six (maximum) working days for negotiations plus a day for execution,” it is proposed to block the resource within a day after receiving the court order.

    Interestingly, literally today, comment on this was given by Deputy Prime Minister Maxim Akimov on the sidelines of the EEF 2018. Judging by the Deputy Prime Minister, he is completely unaware of the legislative initiative of his colleagues: “As for the regulation of data from the point of view of copyrights and rights to “Intellectual property, of course, is perfecting legislation, including anti-piracy law, exactly,” said Akimov. “By the end of the year, we will try to introduce the necessary acts to the Duma, which will allow us to more clearly define the rights of the parties.” The official noted that in this issue "work is being done in close contact with the FAS, the agency for intellectual property, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, and business."

    In the Ministry of Culture, the guys are experienced. They are also on the same day another project published . There is the same as in the described, but much simpler words. Sowing - something so ascends.

    Right holders are interested in tightening the anti-piracy procedure. They are likely to assist the Ministry of Culture in promoting legislation. The ineffectiveness of the current rules was shown by the last conflict between Gazprom-Media and Yandex, when the latter delayed with the removal of links to pirated sites, and then deleted at the same time links to the sites of the right holder . Consideration of the next claims to "Yandex" is scheduled for September 17 and 19, 2018.

    A warning at the request of the site administration: “When commenting on this material, please follow the rules. Please refrain from insults and toxic behavior. The postmoderation works in the comments. ”
