MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, may finally adopt Friday amendments to the so-called anti-piracy law that will significantly expand the spectrum of its action.
The amendments to the law on curbing Internet piracy were approved by the Russian lawmakers in the second reading in July, but the text was later sent to be revised by an expert group.
The current law only bans posting unlicenzed video content in the Internet. If the amendments are adopted, the law will apply to other types of illegal content, including books, music and software.
The new amendments are due to take effect since May 2015.
The legislation will also introduce a procedure under which disputes on author rights can be settled without a court, and websites could be blocked for a repeated violation of these rights. The websites will have to place detailed information on their titles, location, address and e-mail.
