Piracy legalized in Belarus

Yesterday, January 6, 2023, the National Legal Internet Portal of the Republic of Belarus published “On Limitation of Exclusive Rights to Intellectual Property Objects”, essentially confirming the legalization of piracy in the country.

The corresponding law was adopted by the National Assembly at the end of last year, and on January 3, 2023, it was signed by President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.

The law allows the use of computer software, games, film, music and television programs without the permission of copyright holders from countries that “commit unfriendly acts” against Belarus.
