MOSCOW, September 4 (Itar-Tass) - Regarding complaints against the anti-piracy law, Russian President Vladimir Putin remarked that “stealing is a sin”. At the same time, Putin sees the possibility of refining the law.
The matter was raised on Wednesday at the meeting of the Council for Human Rights. There were complaints against the closure of various websites in the Internet. “I think the majority of those present here will agree that stealing is a sin,” Putin remarked. He said that intellectual property must be protected and that various creative teams had addressed the country’s government in this connection.
“They were saying: ‘We will stop writing, we mill stop making films’,” Putin noted. “Indeed, no sooner a film is made than it is in the Internet and is downloaded free,” he said.
The president agreed that there should be no abuses and expressed the readiness to go into details of the anti-piracy legislation.
“There is a need to ensure intellectual rights and also not to ruin the Internet,” he said.
