At this meeting Roskomnadzor has proposed Google to sign antipiracy memorandum. This memo has been signed by all major Russian internet companies and right holders of audiovisual works. The memo obliges internet companies to delete URL to pirate web-sites from searching. For example, Russian Yandex claims it already executes signed memo and delete URL from searching.
