The head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov hopes that with the signing of a Memorandum of cooperation in the sphere of protection of exclusive rights between Internet platforms and rights holders in Runet will be the most clean from piracy space.

«We hope that with the signing of this document… the Internet will be the cleanest space in the world of Internet piracy,» — said Zharov at a meeting with participants of the Memorandum, which took place at the site of Roskomnadzor on Thursday.

A Memorandum on cooperation in combating the spread of pirated content signed a Yandex, Rambler, Kinopoisk and rights holders — the leading media houses of the country. The essence of the document is a pre-trial dispute resolution of copyright holders and search engines, in particular, removal of links to pirated content out of court.

The question of the necessity of the Memorandum between search engines and rights holders rose in may in the discussion at the SPIEF-2018 dedicated to the protection of copyright. Then the head of Roskomnadzor called the largest search engine for cooperation in the protection of copyright content, noting that today links to pirated copies of films are given in the search results that causes complaints of the copyright holders.

In August, four of the broadcaster, entering in «Gazprom-media», filed in the court lawsuits on full lock in «Yandex» pirated copies of a number of series. After over all the service «Yandex.Video» under threat of blocking, the search engine has decided to remove from the search all links on pages with controversial content. Users lost the ability to find legitimate sites, because the search engine claimed that he is unable to distinguish them from the pirate, more than once in the course of discussions on the issue of copyright content publicly questioned the owners.
