TorrentFreak , a tech blog focused on peer-to-peer file sharing and the BitTorrent system, as well as copyright infringement and other digital issues, reported this week that the Russian parliament was considering legislation that would cancel liability to purchase intellectual property from countries that sanctioned Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, effectively legalizing piracy.
TorrentFreak cited a document put forth by the Russian Ministry of Economic Development called the “Priority Action Plan for Ensuring the Development of the Russian Economy in the Conditions of External Sanctions Pressure.” The document contains suggestions for the Russian government to proceed in the face of crippling sanctions placed on Russia by the U.S. and its Western allies. An item listed as point 6.7.3 , concerning how to deal with companies that have revoked software licenses in Russia, states as a possible measure: Cancellation of liability for the use of software (SW) unlicensed in the Russian Federation, owned by a copyright holder from countries that have supported the sanctions. Under current Russian law, TorrentFreak reported, software unlicensed in Russia is illegal to use, but the Ministry’s proposal would cancel both civil and criminal liability for software for which there are no Russian alternatives.
Multiple Russian news outlets reported last week that Russia was considering such a move in order to get around Western sanctions. A Russian state-owned news website called TASS reported on March 5 that the Ministry of Economic Development had been considering lifting international intellectual property restrictions in the face of sanctions. The Ministry said (translated): The possibility of lifting restrictions on the use of intellectual property contained in certain goods, the supply of which to Russia is limited, is being considered.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
