Simplified pattern to be used in blocking pirate mirror sites
Communication Minister Nikolai Nikiforov spoke of the new procedure.
This week, the government commission on legislative activities approved the amendments to close access to pirate mirror websites. Communication Minister Nikolai Nikiforov said that if the document is adopted, mirror sites could be blocked in a simpler way.
"The Moscow City Court takes the initial decision to block a certain resource. Afterwards, if mirror sites appear and the right holders or Roskomnadzor can see them, then a paper is filed to the Moscow City Court. After that there is a court order rather than just a hearing," Mr. Nikiforov said explaining the new pattern. When asked what damage for the right holders will be prevented if the law is adopted, the Minister gave no response, according to the TASS.
Mirror sites are pirate websites that have been copied and are used after the original pirate sites are blocked. So far, no measures can be taken against auto-generated copies of blocked sites.
