Music Label Appeals Piracy Lawsuit against Russian Facebook

After Universal Music lost a lawsuit against VKontakte earlier in 2016, it decided to escalate the case further and appealed the decision. The record label accused the Russian social network of facilitating piracy and demanded compensation and tougher anti-piracy measures.


The copyright holders and even the US Government have considered VKontakte a piracy facilitator for a while now. VK allows its millions of users to upload any videos and music files, and copyright holders often complain that it fails to adopt proper anti-piracy measures. For example, Universal Music and Warner Music filed a lawsuit at the St. Petersburg Arbitration Court 2 years ago. In the lawsuit, the copyright holders demanded countermeasures and compensation for the massive copyright infringement facilitate by the website. Back in 2015, the court ruled that although the social network could not be held responsible for copyright infringement, it was ordered to implement effective measures to prevent further infringement.

However, a subsequent appeal filed by VKontakte overturned this ruling granting it relief from implementing broad anti-piracy measures. Of course, the labels were disappointed by the overturned verdict and now they officially filed an appeal. Universal Music hopes that the social network will be held accountable for facilitating infringement and order to pay damages for the incurred losses. In the original complaint, the record label asked for 13 music tracks to be removed from VKontakte and sought compensation of about $250,000. It is unknown whether Warner Music has filed a similar appeal. However, the label earlier claimed it was likely to pursue the case at a higher court. In the meantime, Sony Music already ended its proceedings against the company, dropping its complaints after reaching a confidential settlement a year ago.

VK director promised that the company would do its best to address the problem, saying that it has put a lot of effort into its anti-piracy measures, in most cases in cooperation with copyright holders. The steps taken were part of their long-term plan of improvement and cooperation with the entertainment industry. Now court will have to decide whether VK’s efforts are indeed sufficient.
