Anti -Pirate Law on Content in Russia: what’s next?

The State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted the “anti -pirate” law in the first reading, which is designed to protect. But who and from whom? I was interested. If you start reading the law (which is very boring, tedious and you don’t need to do it at all), then we can highlight the following: punish those who shake music and films from torrents, as well as force search engines to issue sites with licensed content in the results of search results. A precedent has been created. I am categorically against this law. The news about the adoption of this “water” law excited the Internet.

Yandex has already reacted to this news. And also – negatively. Offered his amendments, but the essence of this will not change in any way. The VKontakte social network also promised to preserve music, which is more and more deleted from the complaints of “copyright holders”. It is worth noting that the author of the work and its “copyright holder” is not always the same person. Most often, copyright holders simply live at the expense of the authors, deducting a penny from sales, let’s say several percent.

Full blocking of sites at the IP address, or throwing the site from the search results – this should be done by search engines with sites where pirate content is stored and propagated. But how the providers will give information about whether the user is downloaded by a pirate video or not? After all, as it seems to me at least – this is private information, that is, it can be issued only at the request of the court or the Ministry of Internal Affairs. What will happen and how it will be – I do not understand.

Further, if Yandex gives links to pirate sites, then it means Yandex itself should be covered as the most active distributor of links to pirate content? Legally, everything is true. Moreover, it is located in Russia, but with Google it is more difficult – foreign… By the way, a simple solution – you can transfer the site and domain to China, or to Ecuador – there is officially allowed the distribution of pirate content.

For me personally, creativity is creativity. And when not quality, general accessibility comes to the first place, but earnings – then, excuse me, it is difficult to call it creativity – this is a business.

But all the same, no matter what they prohibited, no matter what they close, the Internet will always have options for open access to pirate content. Without this, the Internet loses its meaning. In the meantime, we open laptops and tablets and download what we need, suddenly everyone will close?..
