MOSCOW, August 19. /TASS/. Warner Bros., one of the US major film studios, has started using Russian anti-piracy laws in order to prevent the illegal distribution of its movie Entourage, Russia’s media watchdog (Roskomnadzor) said on Wednesday.
"Major foreign rights holders have started using the Russian anti-piracy legislation to protect their rights, thus confirming its importance the effectiveness," Roskomnadzor said.
The Moscow City Court has ordered 20 websites distributing the comedy illegally to take relevant measures following a lawsuit filed by Warner Bros., the watchdog said.
As a result, 16 website owners that carried illegal copies of Entourage had blocked the access to the movie, another four are obliged to do it till August 24.
Under the current legislation, a rights holder can send a request to a website that distributes illegal content, demanding it to be deleted, and, if the website's owner does not respond, the rights holder can go to court and demand that access to the content to be blocked.
The Russian anti-piracy laws, tightened on May 2015, cover not only video content, but also illegal book, music and software distribution.
