Copyrighting Online Information in Russia

A new draft law regarding copyrights of online information is on the way in Russia. Leading news agencies and media outlets met on Wednesday (10 June) and agreed on a common proposal for legal measures against information piracy in the web. The draft law is supposed to grant news reports the legal status of goods by imposing fines for illegal publishing of copyrighted material.

This legal measure can be seen as an effort to establish some rules in the converging world of the Russian information economy and keep the lion share of the advertising revenues for the content providers.

Although Creative Commons does not seem to be an option for the Russian information business, we will solely insert a link to the Russian news agency we received the information from. Hopefully, we will not be fined.

For further Information: RIA Novosti
