The new bill provides fines of up to a million rubles for providers who do not comply with the requirements of the "anti-piracy" law

Yes, the State Duma continues to pass laws and consider bills whose goal is an active fight against “pirates” and those who sympathize with “pirates”. So, the other day, the State Duma Committee on Constitutional Legislation proposed the lower house to pass a bill on monetary fines for providers who do not fulfill the requirements to block pirated resources. Moreover, the fines are very, very rather big.

The maximum amount of the fine will be (in case of adoption of the bill) 1,000,000 rubles. At the same time, the minimum fine is 300,000 rubles, which is also a lot, especially for small and medium providers. All of the above applies to legal entities, and that's not all. The proposed bill provides for fines for individuals, including officials. For the "people" fines from 5 to 50 thousand rubles are provided. What exactly a person has to do or not do to get a fine is not yet completely clear.

By the way, the bill was proposed by the notorious director Stanislav Govorukhin, as well as deputy Leonid Levin. The bill may still be amended, including the size of fines, but it is unlikely that anything will change dramatically. One must think that if there are any changes, then obviously not in favor of the "pirates" and their associates.

The bill, if passed by the State Duma, will clearly become another “anti-piracy” incentive for providers. Perhaps the leadership of many telecommunications companies is not in accordance with the law, but it is unlikely that anyone will wish to incur losses, and very significant ones, due to non-compliance with the requirements of the law.
