Submission + - Russia Proposes New Internet Piracy Crackdown->

Dangerous_Minds writes: Freezenet is reporting that the Russian Ministry of Culture is proposing a new law that would crack down in Internet piracy. Citing both Russian and French reports, the proposed measures would demand websites remove infringing material within 24 hours of a complaint. If there is no compliance, then the website owner could face a fine, though there are conflicting reports as to what that fine is. Reportedly, even web hosting companies could be liable for the act of infringement as well.
