Russian Authors Society wants to charge online broadcasting

Russian Authors' Society (RAS) promises to expand its copyright war to the Internet. Now RAS together with the All-Russian Intellectual Property Organization (RIPO) calculate the size of royalties that online resources will have to pay for streaming audio and video broadcasts, reports Marker.ru. The owners of broadcasting Internet resources may be required to sign an agreement with RAS followed by financial deductions, starting form July.

RAS believes TV and radio Internet broadcasting should be equal to ordinary broadcasting, where royalties have been paid since 2008. This idea was supported in the Russian Federal Service for Compliance with the Law in Mass Communications.

The exact amount of money to be paid is still unknown, but it seems that even non-profit resources will not get away from RAS. However, for those who do not benefit from broadcasting, the law provides a fixed sum payment instead of regular payments.

According to RAS Board of Directors deputy chairman, Igor Basilevsky, leading media holdings have already received notices from RAS, saying that they will share the profits, obtained from the online broadcasting (advertising). He believes it will be easy to agree with resources, owned by these companies.

The president of “Prof-Media” Broadcasting Corporation, Yuri Kostin, denies this point of view, saying: "I'm not sure that we will quickly come to a compromise. There are almost no precedents in the world, when the Internet parallel station broadcasting royalties were paid".

Other experts say RAS and RIPO actions would force online broadcasters whether to refuse from direct broadcasting services (“Echo of Moscow” CEO, Yuri Fedutinov), or take their servers outside of ussia ("2.0 Station” owner, Sergey Pimenov). However, there have also been those, who expressed a willingness to work in a "civilized" way.
