Photo: Vitaly of Belousov/TASS the Government commission on lawmaking activity approved the bill of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation of cancellation of licensing of activities for production of audiovisual works, the computer programs, databases and soundtracks on any carriers. It is reported on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers. The government considers that with development of the Internet demand for CD and DVD was considerably reduced therefore their licensing is not the effective mechanism of fight against piracy any more. By estimates of the commission, the peak of sales of compact disks is passed more than ten years ago, now the musical products on disks are on sale six times less, than on the Internet (the ratio makes 1 billion rubles against 8 billion). The Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications this bill tries to optimize expenses, the president of Association on protection of intellectual property "The Russian board" Yury Zlobin considers: Yury Zlobin the president of Association on protection of intellectual property "The Russian board" "A disk subject gradually consigns to the past, there is no sense to hold on the salary of the officials granting licenses. That case when I agree with the government: everything gradually passed into network. Content extends on the Internet today. To waste efforts to control of the disk market absolutely senselessly". Advocaat Centra of the digital rights Sarkis Darbinyan considers that licensing in fight against counterfeit disks was inefficient: — At a dawn of the middle of the 90th years compact disks pressed literally bulldozers. As a result piracy not it killed, and new technologies, it flowed in other format. Today even the anti-counterfeiting law does not allow to speak about efficiency of this state policy. — Whether there is in world practice a licensing of compact disks? — Around the world the release of compact disks is not subject to licensing, the Russian legislation was superfluous in due time. — Whether there are in this situation risks for copyright? — No, it perfect another story, licensing does not belong to protection of copyright in any way. Licensing controls all who are engaged in release of CD products. On the website of the government it is said that only two new licenses for production of works and programs on compact disks and DVD in the current year were granted. In total in the register there are 82 existing licenses for this type of activity. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
