The Institute for Development of the Internet is an organization created to promote discussion between representatives of the Russian government and tech firms. In fact, it is usually used to iron out differences on contentious issues.
The 49-year-old Herman Klimenko was first appointed a chairman of the Institute, but a few weeks ago he was called upon by Russian president to become his personal adviser on the development of the worldwide web and accepted the offer. Now the Internet piracy controversy falls within Klimenko’s remit, and he already weighed in with his opinions, which (surprisingly) pour cold water on aggressive measures for dealing with piracy.
Herman Klimenko said that when rightsowners demanded that “rogue” websites should be blocked on a permanent basis, they didn’t consider whether it would actually be possible for technical reasons. Well, one should agree that website blocking is a controversial issue that even some rightsowners don’t believe in, but Putin’s adviser’s suggestion that aggressive anti-piracy measures should be aligned with the state of the economy will surely have eyebrows raised.
Klimenko acknowledged that content creators should be able to get a return on their works, but also expressed an opinion that now might not be the right time to send in the heavies to “terrorize” the public on the issue. In particular, Klimenko said that copyright holders should consider the economic conditions before demanding more action and return to these measures only when the economy improves.
