Russian Facebook Cracking Down on eBook Piracy

Russian social networking giant vKontakte, which is more popular in the country (and indeed more convenient) than Facebook, takes measures to end eBook piracy on its platform. vKontakte, or VK, is widely known as a great place to stream unauthorized copyrighted content, but recently the platform has initiated a kind of "takedown-staydown" mechanism.

Of course, the most popular content is music, movies, and TV shows. However, there are lots of pirates who like to download eBooks for free, especially after dedicated readers like Kindle and eBook-capable hardware like tablets and smartphones became very popular. eBooks are lightweight, they can be easily downloaded from torrent and file-hosting services in mere seconds and consumed on the go.

eBooks can be easy to find on vKontakte, which often shows up in searches for popular book titles. It should be noted that eBooks were the reason vKontakte has found itself embroiled in lots of copyright-related disputes. Perhaps, this is the answer to the question why VK decided to take steps against eBooks first. vKontakte has reportedly introduced a system that takes down content upon copyright holders’ complaints, and prevents the same content from becoming infringed in the future. Technically, such content can be reuploaded to the site, but cannot be downloaded again.

As a result, a prominent anti-piracy group reported a shift in availability, saying that its monitoring service was sending fewer claims to vKontakte. In order to force VK into negotiation, the group reported the social network to the Moscow City Court after it allegedly failed to protect copyright.

Although it officially remains unclear what exactly was the reason for disappearance of books from vKontakte, industry experts say they do not rule out a link between recent developments and the group’s legal action against the platform. Another assumption was that some kind of deal has been reached with book owners.

Back in 2015, a range of book publishers offered some ways for vKontakte to monetize content on its platform – for example, via an all-you-can-eat subscription model or through an ad-supported mechanism and a partner program. The latter option assumes that samples of books are diverting to publisher platforms. Perhaps, VK decided to try some of the options – anyway, if pirate content is disappearing from the platform, publishers will be happy.
