Russia Is Developing Online Piracy Crackdown

Russia Is Developing Online Piracy Crackdown

A new legislation is under development in the country, which could see a crackdown on Internet users uploading pirated material to social media sites. The authorities may also ban advertising from infringing websites and block subscription-based platforms from processing user payments.

Russia still has a reputation of not doing enough to tackle online piracy, but in fact the country has become unusually keen to make amends – for instance, site-blocking is now a common thing: websites noticed for multiple infringement are being subjected to a permanent lifetime injunction by local Internet service providers.

However, aside from infringing through torrent sites and streaming portals, users also widely use social networking platforms to share illegal content, where they are allowed to upload any content they want, thereby creating huge libraries of infringing material. Russian government is going to tackle this problem by drafting new legislation aimed at social media platforms that allow users to upload copyright-protected content. Copyright holders believe that a change in the law will make it harder for social platforms to evade liability.

At the moment, Article 1253.1 of the Civil Code defines social media sites as “information brokers”, which means that platforms like VKontakte can avoid being held liable for content uploaded by their members. Copyright owners ask to remove or rewrite that legislation to have more useful options to enforce their rights.

The authorities also consider changes to the law that would further punish websites that have already been court ordered to be blocked. At the moment, local ISPs block them, but copyright owners foresee a situation where the finances of infringing services are put under pressure too. There are proposals to ban such platforms from carrying advertising. Besides, the sites that run on a subscription basis may be forbidden from accepting payments from their users. Such voluntary agreements with payment services are already in place in the US and Europe.

Finally, another bill has been sent to the Ministry of Communications, designed to address the rise of mirrors of the blocked sites and proposing an obligation to have search engines strip content from results and measures to tackle VPNs and proxies.
