MOSCOW, May 27 (RAPSI) – The lower house of Russian parliament on Wednesday passed a draft law envisaging blocking of Internet applicactions violating copyright and related rights in the second and third readings.

The document also extends such an obligation to the application aggregators including AppStore, Google Play and others.

Amendments, as it said in the State Duma statement, are to be added to the Law on Information, Information Technologies and the Protection of Information.

Russia’s communications watchdog Roskomnadzor, under the bill, would be authorized to restrict access to illegal content in mobile applications following a right holder’s petition or based on a court ruling in effect.

If adopted the initiative is to come into force on October 1.
