Russian President Dmitry Medvedev approved the idea of ??creating a global registry of intellectual property in e-format, and instructed to draft an address (proposing the creation of such registry) to the international organizations and leaders of the several states.
The staff at the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Communications, Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation will be working on this project. Presidential aide, Arkady Dvorkovich, confirmed that Medvedev instructed Russian officials to launch this project.
The idea of ??creating a world registry of reference templates - samples of video, music and text - belongs to the group under the supervision of the First Deputy Prime Minister, Igor Shuvalov. Members of the group revealed some of the details of the project; in particular, special tags will be used to classify content. The tags will allow content owners to classify their intellectual property: completely free, free to read/watch, free to copy, etc.
The plan is to make the recognition system available to search engines and other large Internet sites. In addition, it will give the end users a better understanding of what content can be copied for free.
President Dmitry Medvedev discussed the copyright protection on the Internet with the representatives of the media industry at a meeting in April of 2011.
