The Russian Association for Electronic Communications (RAEC) launched site rutakedown.ru, at the day when Federal Law 187 (so called “untipirate” law) enters into force.
The main aim of this site is to help in pre-court examination of disputes, inform about principles of self-regulation in Ru.net, provide with public control under execution of anti-private law.
RuTakeDown will include three blocks: information-educational with aggregated data about self-regulating machinery and cooperation procedures of various information brokers with rightholders, database of blocked sites, and also a section with users` applications, which experts of RAEC will consider promptly and direct it to recourses` owners in Internet, who offered contacts of the site administration.
“This portal will help users to complaint on unavailability of content, sites owners – on illegal, according to their opinion, blocking, and rightholders – on copyright infringement under a pre-action protocol. On the site will also be available recommendations for courts on enforcement, and statistics on blocked resources, provided by Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications”, - noted deputy director of RAEC Sergey Grebennikov.
It is important to remind that Raec still considers that Federal Law 187 together with other Laws, regulating network`s activity, creates barriers on the way to Internet economy development. In existing formulation the Law gives an opportunity to close the site at any moment by the reason of distribution by another user a reference on pirate content. According to RAEC, proposed by the Association changes and amendments to the Law will contribute in decreasing possible negative consequences. This is why RAEC continues to insist on offered by the Branch amendments.
To solve the stated by Ru.net players task will help public control under the Law execution and opportunity of out-of-court settlement between rightholders and information brockers – which is the main aim of the project rutakedown.ru
