Facebook Added to Russian Website Blocklist

The idea that sites that do not comply with the Russia’s laws should be blocked is not new. Russia has been operating a national website blacklist since late 2012 and it currently contains hundreds of websites, from those promoting drug taking and suicide to those offering child pr0n0graphy.

But while blocking the most offensive of websites receives little opposition from the public, Russia’s fledgling and largely unpopular anti-piracy law also introduced provisions for sites carrying infringing content to be blocked at the ISP level.

from the article on Torrent:

"But while blocking the most offensive of websites receives little opposition from the public, Russia’s fledgling and largely unpopular anti-piracy law also introduced provisions for sites carrying infringing content to be blocked at the ISP level."

Good!!! I am sick and tired of having my work stolen! Those smug thieves take it upon themselves to decide whether my work should be free or not.

Some of you might be curious what my work is, and I understand that. But it is critically important to maintain my anonymity. But let me say this much, I've lost tens of thousands of dollars due to unauthorized publication of my work in Russia as a matter of fact. There may be other countries where I've been ripped off as well.

I'm not rich at all. That money would mean a lot to me.

Pray for me. hug.gif

yup.gif Loss of income due to piracy has to be disturbing to say the least. As the economy is at this point, no one is getting richer unless they are already there. 13.gif
