Moscow Cracking Down On Digital Pirates

Moscow has begun cracking down on illegal copies of movies and music. Last summer, illegal CD’s and DVD’s were freely available on the streets of the Russian capital. “In the early 1990s, cinemas showed the latest movies, but not one rouble went to pay the Hollywood studios that made them. Often pirate movies were broadcast on state television. Even now, pirate disks are openly on sale in almost every corner of Russia.”
