Russia wants to enhance new anti-piracy law

Российский антипиратский закон может быть дополненDespite the public’s obvious reaction to the new Russian anti-piracy law, the country’s lawmakers are now planning to expand it.

Also known as the Russian SOPA, the anti-piracy law came into force on August 1 and targets the unauthorized distribution of movies and TV shows, allowing rights holders to file complaints against sites carrying or linking to such content.

If they don’t comply, the sites become blocked by ISPs until a judge makes a decision.

Now, with a new amendment, the law could become everyone’s worst nightmare, and that includes search engines. The anti-piracy bill will be expanded to include music, photos, and other images, as well as text-based material, TorrentFreak reports.

Of course, the news isn’t exactly surprising, since this type of content was supposed to be included in the first place but got cut out right before the bill was passed.
