Russia Wants To Fine Websites For Poor Copyright Takedowns  January 31, 2013 – 12:57 pm

When it comes to the enforcement of copyright Russia is hardly the poster boy of the world’s intellectual property focused companies. In recent years the country has been subjected to intense criticism, especially from the United States, over its failure to curtail piracy both off and online.

It’s expected that Russia will eventually harden its currently lax approach to copyright but if the latest news coming out of the government there is anything to go by, that might be much sooner than most people expected.

A draft law filed by the Ministry of Culture on January 25 proposes that Russia toughens its approach to the handling of copyright takedowns to a level that will terrify technology businesses and give rightsholders a reason to party.

Under current laws such as the DMCA and other regional equivalents, website operators and hosts are required to remove allegedly infringing content once they receive a properly formatted “good faith” complaint. The system is widely used with Google receiving millions of such notices every week. However, if Russia’s draft law is approved, life is going to get very difficult for intermediaries.

The proposed amendments to current legislation will see hosting providers and site owners subjected to strict rules on how they must deal with takedown requests from copyright holders. Website operators will be given a day to remove or block content with hosts given an extra day in the event they have to discuss the takedown request with websites they host.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
