Internet Proposals Coming

President Dmitry Medvedev will send proposals on Internet regulations to G8 partners in a few weeks after issuing a number of instructions following his meeting with representatives of the Internet community Thursday.

The proposals should be worked out after their discussion within the professional community and with foreign partners, presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich said.

"The main topics for discussion are to broaden the opportunities for authors and to rule out the responsibility of users not distributing the content in violation of the copyright interests. These subjects were raised by the Russian president, including at the G8 summit a few days ago," Dvorkovich said.
