A couple of days ago Russian state senate – Duma – was carrying on (still not yet passed) a law to contraforce the American economical sanctions against Russia. One of the proposals was to cancel the intellectual property rights on the territory of Russia. Sort of copy stuff without paying respective copyright owners on the state level. Something similar was already done by USSR, and here is a little example of Soviet toys copied from the West.
Hopefully they won’t pass this law this time, as it would probably turn out to attract even more furious sanctions from the Western states and World Trade Organization.
