MOSCOW, August 11 (Itar-Tass) - One hundred on-line signatures collected under the petition to abolish the anti-pirate law will let the legislators invite the professional community to work on the document, first deputy chairman of the Duma’s committee on information policy, information technologies and communications, Andrei Tumanov /of A Just Russia/ said on Sunday.
“This anti-pirate law was initiated by non-specialists. And, most probably, it will not be working now,” the deputy said. “It is very bad, where deputies, who do not understand an issue, adopt a law. I support the approach, where the professional community works on laws.”
The petition to abolish the law collected at the portal of the Russian Public Initiative the 100 signatures required for revision of the issue by the authorities. Now, a special expert group will analyse the document. Within two months, the expert group is to offer its views and a decision on a new legal document or other measures.
The initiative to abolish the anti-pirate law has become the second public petition supported by the required number of the Internet users. The first initiative was to ban state officials and staff of state-run companies to buy cars, which cost above 1.5 million roubles.
