Russia Upsets IFPI's Jay Berman

Russia has 'deeply disappointed' IFPI chairman, and former RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) boss, Jay Berman, and upset the Big Five (or is it Four or Three?) record labels.

Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin will, no doubt, be devastated.

In a statement, the IFPI (International Federation of Phonographic Industry) expressed its "strong disappointment" at the Russian Parliament's decision to postpone adoption of amendments to its copyright law.

"We are deeply disappointed at the postponement of these amendments which, while not completely comprehensive, are a crucial first step towards bringing Russia into line with international standards of copyright protection," said Berman, who routinely lectures governments on behalf of his bosses, the labels.

"This delay sends worrying signals over Russia's publicly voiced commitment to tackle its very serious shortcomings in copyright protection and enforcement," he said sternly.

Bad Russia. Bad

Specifically, Berman's "long-awaited amendments" call for: "adapting rights to face technological changes brought about by the growth of the Russian internet market; safeguarding international repertoire by protecting pre-1995 sound recordings and pre-1973 works; and, strengthening enforcement standards to combat Russia's vast CD overcapacity which is the breeding ground for rampant CD piracy".

"When two out of every three recordings is pirated, Russian artists can simply not make a living," says Berman, and, "International record companies no longer find it viable to invest money in local artists in a country where the number of CD plants have more than doubled in the last three years and production capacity nearly tripled while legitimate sales continue to fall."

Reports that Putin will call a special session of the Russian parliament to address the labels' concerns are probably exagerated.
