Jot: Russia to Introduce Internet Monitor Commission

In its efforts to protect intellectual property rights the Russian government:
will introduce a new Internet commission that will monitor the web for illegal sites and violations of authorship rights, said Aslan Yusufov, a senior prosecutor in the legal department of the general prosecutor's office.
I guess this is also an effort to reduce the unemployment rate, considering the work this commission will have on its hands, monitoring the (Russian) internet for copyright infringing content. Maybe it will do a little overtime and get rid of some non-copyrighted speech that it might deem illegal nonetheless.
