Russian regulator vows to block YouTube pages over alleged copyright infringement
MOSCOW, July 22 (RAPSI) – The Russian communications regulator Roskomnadzor said that access to YouTube would be partially restricted over alleged copyright infringement, RIA Novosti reported on Wednesday, citing a statement released by the regulator.
Access would be restricted on June 27 if administration of the service fails to remove all links to Fizruk (PE Teacher) and Chernobyl films, according to the regulator.
Roskomnadzor filed a copyright infringement warning in April. The administration of the service promptly removed the controversial links.
In July, the regulator checked the service again and found 137 links to the films.
