Russian ministry of communication promised USA quid pro quo in copyright protection

Deputy of Russian minister of communication (MinCom) Alexey Volin stated, that MinCom is intended to cooperate with USA in the field of cyber security and copyright protection, but such cooperation will based on quid pro quo principle.

Alexey Volin has underlined that Russia continues to protect copyright of USA companies and the access to web-sites with illegal content is restricted. However, MinCom’s resources are “limited” and in the context of USA sanctions copyright protection for USA companies can be restricted. “When some companies will abide the regime of sanctions, I’m afraid, we will not have enough forces to effectively protect their interests in Russia”, – said Volin.
