Russian Film Producers Demand Adequate Laws Against Internet Piracy
The Association of Television and Film Producers of Russia has recently drafted a set of legislative proposals that would help battle the growing problem of Internet piracy, RIA Novosti reports.
The association members are pushing for legislation changes that would make it obligatory for web administrators and Internet providers to fight against unauthorized content. The members also envision a separate law regulating copyright protection on the Internet.
Last year the members urged various Russian companies to remove all illegal content from their websites by January 31, 2011. The members have lifted the deadline and are now urging the websites only to remove the movies currently in theaters.
