Russian Senator Prefers Torrents to Cinemas and Opposes Web Blockades

Russian Senator Prefers Torrents to Cinemas and Opposes Web Blockades

It’s a rare thing that mainstream politicians have something good to say about online file-sharing, but the Federation Council member Lyudmila Bokova of the Russian parliament speaks honestly about her preferences: "I like using torrents," she says, "because they enable you to download information quickly, easily and cheaply." The most surprising fact is that Senator Bokova is not a member of the Pirate Party.

On the one hand, Russia is cracking down on pirate sites, expanding its “eternal” blocklist and planning new law that would hold social networks liable for the users’ infringement. On the other hand, there are people like Senator Lyudmila Bokova at the helm.

Speaking at the “Internet and Law” event arranged by Russian news outlet, Senator described torrents as a convenient and cost-effective method of obtaining content. She said that going to the movies today would cost people lots of money – “just look at the price of tickets: about $18 per person. For a family of three, it will amount to over $50 from the budget, which is too expensive (minimum monthly wage in Russia is only $135, although in Moscow it’s over $300). At the same time, a torrent is cheap.”

Moreover, Bokova, who served as deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, also condemned Russia’s plans to block pirate websites without a trial. Senator criticized amendments that would force search engines such as Google and local giant Yandex to remove links to websites from their search results. She believes that such approach will create more problems in the society and speaks in favor of a court order in this case.

czarnibog avatarUntil recent years Russians openly sold pirated DVD & CDs in legitimate shopping centre. It's not surprising

No avatarShe must be living in a parallel universe. Average movie ticket is $3 to $6. Premium seats on weekends is probably double that, but not more.

manfromthisearth avatarI have always stated and this is it ....WE pay for the internet through our ISP...IF "THEY" cinema producers WANT A FAIR share of alleged loss of revenue ROUND TABLE TALK with ISP's and drop your ridiculous prices and gain a GREATER SHARE FROM people who would normally go to the cinema's to watch the latest.

Inpurisnatura avatarJust FYI, movie tickets here are about $8-$10 for matinee and then $9-$12 for evening shows. That doesn't include any snacks. Sodas here are $3.50 for a small drink and $5 for a large. Popcorn is $2 for a tiny one and $5 for the large one. Many of the theaters here have actual food now, but the prices are OUTRAGEOUS. Chicken fingers with fries costs $19.

There should be no question as to why people pirate. If they don't understand why; they make way too much money. Regular people with regular families cannot afford to spend $45 in ticket cost alone to take their kids to the movies. And you KNOW the kids want a drink and popcorn, maybe some candy. A normal family trip to the movies could cost upwards of $60...to see a movie that could be no good. That's just not money people can afford to spend nowadays in a recession where they are lucky to even have a job.

shivababa avatarI have to agree it is not just the ticket, but the soda and popcorn.
