MOSCOW, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Measures to expand the operation of the anti-piracy law to music, books and photos requires additional expenses and additional employees of the Federal Service for Control and Supervision of Media and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor), the service’s head, Alexander Zharov, told Itar-Tass.
If the use of the anti-piracy law expands, the service required additional funding at the amount of 34 million rubles ($1 million): 20 million rubles ($612,840) for the wages fund, 14 million rubles ($428,988) for modernizing the existing information resources, Zharov said.
He called for forming a separate department, which would deal with registers.
“I hope that if legislation is expanded, deputies and the Culture Ministry, which will deal with the law, take into account this issue,” the Roskomnadzor head said.
The anti-piracy law, which came into effect on August 1, 2013, makes amendments to several legislative acts and determines the procedure for protecting intellectual rights to motions and television films. In September a draft law, which spreads the scope of law to all copyright (music, software texts etc), was submitted to the State Duma, lower house of parliament.
