RUSSIAN COPYRIGHT BILL


EasyBourse reports that not everyone’s happy with the new copyright bill passed by the Russian Duma yesterday. Lobbyists are arguing that it does not comply with Russia’s international obligations and that it will take copyright owners and enforcement agencies up to 3 years to get used to, making enforcement less effective.

Last time the IPKat looked, Russia was a sovereign state…

For a bit of light relief, Merpel suggests that you take a look at how Mosnews reports the same story.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
