Russian Social Network Targeted by Copyright Holders

Russian Social Network Targeted by Copyright Holders

vKontakte (InTouch), the Russian and CIS social networking giant, can be blocked by Russia’s Internet service providers after the rightsowners took a complaint to court. The local anti-piracy outfit argues that the social network, which accounts for dozens of millions of daily users, fails to take down pirated content.


Entertainment industry has always portrayed vKontakte as a poor partner that largely fails to deal with the huge amounts of copyright infringement on its platform. The social network faces regular criticism from both the US music and movie industries, with various affiliated companies having taken vKontakte to court several times. Now the service is under threat locally – and it seems that it needs to take this threat very seriously.

It is the first time ever the platform has been reported to the Moscow City Court for the copyright infringement of its users. The court can order a site to be blocked on the ISP level and even on a permanent basis, should those complaints persist. Today vKontakte is targeted by the anti-piracy outfit representing a number of book publishers, with the current complaint involving just a single book title. The anti-piracy outfit explained that there are Public and “My Documents” sections, which it has cleaned, and vKontakte has deleted files based on its claim. But in one of the cases it was found that the content has remained in place, which means that the platform fails to take proper protection measures.

Previously, the anti-piracy group filed claims against vKontakte in the Arbitration Court of St. Petersburg, but the process turned out too slow and expensive, and the procedure was not quite clear to the group.

Now that you know that Moscow City Court can render the social network inaccessible in the country to its hundreds of millions of signed-up users, perhaps you may wonder why no one has reported vKontakte to the Court before. The rumors are that the local telecoms watchdog asked them not to, saying that the site should be given space since it had been cooperating with entertainment companies on piracy.

On the other part, vKontakte seems less than impressed at being reported to the Moscow City Court, saying that the plaintiff is trying not to protect their rights but to put pressure on the service.
