The fight against Internet pirates continues (in any case, they theorize about this topic), for example, the head of Amedia Alexander Akopov, one of the largest manufacturers of television products in Russia, plans to block access to advertising pirates. He proposed to fight not with pirated products on the Web as such, but simply to deprive pirates of advertising revenue.
The other day, Akopov said that, since the income of pirates on the Web comes mainly from advertising, advertisers, both domestic and foreign, should be banned from placing advertising on pirate websites. To achieve this goal, he proposes to report on pirate sites to foreign and domestic advertisers who should stop cooperating with similar sites. In addition, Akopov plans to punish users who download movies illegally.
He even plans to buy out the strip in the online magazine RBC daily, where, according to him, information about people who download content illegally will be published (the full name is the name of the downloaded movie).
Akopov, like all "fighters against online piracy," believes that it is the pirates who deprive the domestic producer of part of the income. For example, employees of the same "Amedia" calculated that the losses of Russian right holders, offended by pirates, amount to more than a billion dollars each year.
Akopov blames "Vkontakte" that on the pages of this resource a huge amount of content illegally posted there (read - movies, music). He is even preparing to sue the developers of this social network, calling them criminals. However, after a while he refused his words and apologized to those developers.
In general, the proposed measures, coupled with the proposal of the Moscow City Duma deputies (these figures proposed to fine users who pump movies illegally), in the opinion of the “fighters with pirates”, should have an impact on both pirates and ordinary users.
Honestly, it all sounds naive somehow, agree - apparently, these comrades never heard that, apart from any torrents and Vkontakte, there are a lot of various resources from where you can download the movie (or watch what they want online) and no one will simply know about it (well, of course, if you do not apply the "heavy artillery" in the form of all sorts of departments to combat cyber crime).
