16:32 22/01/2016

MOSCOW, January 22 (RAPSI) – The Moscow City Court’s ruling ordering to shut down Rutracker.org, one of Russia's most popular downloading websites, takes effect, according to court records. 

In December, the court sided with Eksmo Publishing House and JSC SBA Production, a Warner Music Group Company, that claimed unauthorised distribution of books written by Victor Pelevin and songs of rap artist Guf. 

Complaints against the ruling which had been filed by users of the website were dismissed.

The anti-piracy law took effect in Russia on August 1, 2013, despite protests from Internet companies. It sets out the legal grounds and procedure for limiting access to websites that distribute movies and TV films in violation of copyright.

The law also includes rules for bringing to account or condoning information brokers (Internet and hosting providers).
