Yandex launched a bot to search for pirated movies and TV shows

A bot working on the principles of machine learning, after detecting a link to pirated content, transmits it

representatives of the company - as a result, Yandex simply stops showing it in its search results.

Recently, Yandex and Mail.Ru Group signed a cooperation agreement with copyright holders. Now, search services will, without a trial, delete links to pirated series, films or live broadcasts from the search results or from their video services.

At the request of Yandex copyright holders from November2018 removed more than 100 thousand links from the search. At the same time, Google has not yet joined the memorandum - Roskomnadzor even had to fine the company 500 thousand rubles for refusing to remove links to pirated content. 

Now the Russian authorities are developing a newpackage of anti-piracy legislation, under which Internet companies will be required to remove links from search results to pirated content without a court decision.
