 Illegal Coverage Of the Olympics Will Be Blocked

Russian Ministry of Communications and Sochi-2014 Organizing Committee are intending to block illegal coverage of the Olympics, Deputy Minister of Communications and Mass Media, Alexei Volin said.

      "We will block them right away they won't even know what hit them. Locking up will be implemented through Roscomnadzor. We will eliminate them with all possible ways," Mr. Volin said. According to deputy minister, it will be quite easy to find the websites streaming pirated content: broadcasting company will equip Sochi-2014 videos with special "digital imprints" that can be easily recognized by computer systems.

      "There already are companies that will monitor these marks," said Mr. Volin, but did not specify what the responsible companies are. As Mr. Volin added, the legislation on Olympics broadcasts’ protection does not have to be altered. At the same time he underlined that the main task is still not blocking, but avoiding such broadcasts in advance. To do this, the Ministry of Communications is planning to commune with online forums. Russian Association of Electronic Communications, which represents the interests of Google, Microsoft, Mail.Ru Group and other companies, was invited to join the working group.
