MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday signed amendments to the antipiracy law enabling to block access to Web sites with not only illegal video content, but also objects of authors’ and adjacent rights starting from January 1, 2015.

The amendments involve pirate electronic copies of books, music and programs, with exception made only for photos.

The law now stipulates an option of settling disputes with rights’ owners without waiting for a court decision. Access to the Web site can be blocked on a permanent basis if the resource regularly violates the intellectual property rights.

Authors of the amendments said that resources’ owners will have a choice whether to delete content upon a receipt of a claim from the rights’ owner or not. If the content is deleted, all the claims are elevated. Otherwise, access to the resource is blocked for the period of court proceedings.

Web sites will be completely blocked if the rights’ owner wins the court process twice. The resource must be blocked during 24 hours.
