  1. Russia demands Internet users show ID to access public Wifi (Reuters) - Russia further tightened its control of the Internet on Friday, requiring people using public Wifi hotspots provide identification, a policy that prompted anger from bloggers and confusion among telecom operators on how it would work. The decree, signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on July 31 but published online on Friday, also requires companies to declare who is using their web networks. The legislation caught many in the industry by surprise and companies said it was not clear how it would be enforced. A flurry o
  2. Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of Russia's controversial anti-piracy law. Figures released by Russia's telecoms agency reveal that in the past year 12 sites, mainly torrent trackers, were blocked under the legislation. Critics say that web-blocking has changed very little, with pirate content just as easy to find as before. Following intense pressure from local and international rightsholders, on August 1, 2013, Russia introduced a brand new anti-piracy law. The key strength of the legislation is that provides a mechanism for sites to be blocked should they not comply with rights
  3. Geneva, Switzerland (CNN) -- The diplomatic gridlock between Iran and the West seemed immovable for decades. But on Sunday, diplomats made history when Iran and six world powers came together on an agreement over Iran's nuclear program. The deal dials back Iran's ability to work toward a nuclear weapon and at the same time loosens the choke hold of international sanctions on Iran's economy. The two sides now have six months to find out how historic the breakthrough really is. That's the duration of the preliminary agreement hammered out in Geneva, Switzerland, by Iran and the P5+1 -- the five
  4. February 07, 2014 22:01 The United States’ top diplomat said this week that the US will not walk away from Japan as tensions worsen in the Far East between America’s Asian ally and China regarding a heated territory dispute in the Pacific. US Secretary of State John Kerry was meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida on Friday when he reiterated previous remarks from the White House about the Obama administration’s willingness to come to Japan’s aid if events escalate in the East China Sea. Late last year, China declared a portion of the East China Sea between Taiwan and Japan to
  5. 21 January 2014 Last updated at 14:30 GMT The photo was tweeted on Monday A BBC photo of a men's cubicle with twin toilets at a Sochi Olympics venue has caused a Twitter storm in Russia. The picture from the Biathlon Centre tweeted by Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg was picked up by opposition leader Alexei Navalny among others. Mr Navalny queried how the budget for the games, said to be $50bn (£30bn; 1,700bn roubles), had been spent. Elsewhere, the photo caused disbelief and much hilarity, with some linking it to the recent debate over gay rights. Communal toilets at Kazan Universit
  6. By Michael J de la Merced Jan 26, 2014, 06.18 AM IST DAVOS (Switzerland): Russia plans to extend its offer of asylum to Edward J Snowden beyond August, a Russian lawmaker said on Friday at the WEF here. The lawmaker, Aleksei K Pushkov, chairman of the foreign affairs committee in Russia's lower house of parliament, hinted during a panel discussion that the extension of temporary refugee status for Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, might be indefinite. "He will not be sent out of Russia," Pushkov said. "It will be up to Snowden." He added that Snowden's father believes h

Stun grenades and flares were thrown as protesters tried to reach parliament, their way blocked by police and buses. Opposition politician Vitali Klitschko later said President Viktor Yanukovych had agreed to set up a cross-party commission to resolve the crisis. The US appealed for an end to the

  10. By Anna Kuchma,February 5, 2014 Dan Pototsky, RBTH Users say they plan to ignore the ban while experts try to balance the virtual currency’s benefits and drawbacks. On Jan. 29, the Central Bank of Russia issued an official warning stating that all Bitcoin transactions will be considered potentially suspicious and added that use of Bitcoins in Russia is illegal. The currency is already banned in China, and the Financial Supervisory Authority of Denmark has also issues a statement warning against its use. In China, financial institutions are prohibited from conducting virtual currency transacti
  11. 26.01.2014 45 mins ago Fugitive former NSA contractor Edward Snowden has claimed that US government officials "want to kill me" in an exclusive interview which German television says it conducted in Moscow. German NDR television issued a further snippet ahead of a broadcast late Sunday in Europe of an exclusive interview with Snowden in which the intelligence whistleblower claims that US officials wanted him killed. "These people, and they are government officials, have said they would love to put a bullet in my head or poison me when I come out of the supermarket, and then watch as I die in
  12. It was supposed to be the world's toughest anti-piracy regime but Russia's site blocking legislation just isn't working. That's not just the opinion of irate movie and music companies either, but comments from Vladimir Putin himself. In the early days of 2013 it became clear that after years of wavering, Russia was finally going to get tough on Internet piracy. Despite outcry from Internet giants such as Google, and Yandex, the country’s largest search engine, the government pressed ahead with its plans. On August 1, 2013, a new law was passed which would allow sites to be blocked at the IS
  13. After numerous warnings the music industry has run out of patience with vKontakte, Russia's equivalent of Facebook. Demanding more than $1 million in damages, this week Sony Music, Universal Music and Warner Music each filed separate lawsuits in Russia, accusing the social network site of facilitating large-scale copyright infringement. For several years vKontakte, or VK, has been marked as a piracy facilitator by copyright holders and even the U.S. Government. In several Special 301 Reports published by the United States Trade Representative, Russia’s Facebook equivalent has been criticize
  14. Responding to copyright takedown requests is generally considered to be the best way for a user-generated content site to stay on the right side of the law. However, new copyright amendments being prepared by Russia's Ministry of Communications could see entire websites blocked by court order if experts believe their main aim is piracy. Complying with elements of the DMCA and its European equivalents is an important measure in the operations of many thousands of websites. Not being held liable for infringements carried out by users has allowed entrepreneurs to develop countless user-generat
