For the first time, the social network Instagram, owned by Facebook, entered the Russian Federation in the top three platforms with the largest number of links to illegal copies of books.

The Association for the Protection of Copyright on the Internet turned to Roskomnadzor with a request to bring Facebook Inc to administrative responsibility for mass piracy.

This was reported to Vedomosti, citing Association for the Protection of Copyright on the Internet .

The first place in the top 3 sites with the largest number of detected links to illegal copies of books is occupied by Telegram, where about 34 thousand such copies were identified. Instagram counted over three thousand links, and in third place YоuTube - 2.4 thousand.

Despite the fact that the copyright holder has the right to remove illegal content or posted links to it, Instagram does not do this, Association for the Protection of Copyright on the Internet emphasizes. Moreover, the social network does not even remove those links in respect of which the Moscow City Court had previously taken interim measures. Association for the Protection of Copyright on the Internet believes that in this way it can be concluded that "Instagram patronizes" Internet pirates.

The applicants, in their appeal to Roskomnadzor, demand that Facebook be brought to administrative responsibility under the article on non-removal of illegal content, the punishment for which can reach 4 million rubles.

It's worth reminding that at the end of last year, the European Commission for the first time accused the Telegram messenger and the social network VKontakte of aiding piracy. Before that, the Moscow City Court ordered Google to block the Music Downloader mobile application on Google Play, where pirated content was found.
