Russia Mulling New Copyright Legislation

Russia Mulling New Copyright Legislation

In 2010 a few Russian leading web companies, including Google and social network InTouch (“Vkontakte”) wrote an open letter to the entertainment industries, where they asked copyright owners to back off on claims that the services are liable for copyright infringement committed by their users. Today the country’s Communications Minister announced that the web giants will have their way, and it will be actual infringers that would be held liable for their actions.

For the last months, the international rights owners, desperate to stop the illegal file-sharing of their content, have increasingly insisted that Russia’s web giants must keep their systems free from copyrighted content – if necessary, even by employing special people to do so.

The attention was attracted to some of the Russian biggest Internet players – search engines Google, Yandex and Rambler, mail service Mail.ru, and social networking site InTouch (“Vkontakte”), which was named by the entertainment industry as one of the most notorious websites for hosting lots of illegal music.

Through an open letter to entertainment industry and lawmakers, the mentioned companies announced that they can’t afford to monitor millions of users to make sure their every act is legal. Besides, the whole world now knows that it’s actual infringers who are guilty of their own copyright violations.

Now it appears that the Internet companies will have their way: in future, individual Internet users, not service providers, will be held responsible for making illegal content available online. By the way, the first lawsuit has already been filed against the individual who added a few songs at his page on Vkontakte.

While the giants welcomed the news, they won’t be completely absolved of liability related to infringing content hosted on their servers. The Internet companies should also remove illegal content from their servers after they are notified by rights owners it’s unauthorized. Such manoeuvres on responsibility by both the entertainment industry and service providers are considered to be an attempt to influence a currently mulled piece of legislation. The proposed law will regulate online IP rights disputes that currently find themselves in a legislative vacuum.

However, not everyone welcomed the change – for example, the head of the country’s Organization for Intellectual Property Rights insists that while protecting service providers, the legislation can damage the interests of copyright owners. In addition, it can end at holding the average user guilty, all while online giants continue to make advertising money.
