Belarus legalizes pirated movies, music, and software.

In Belarus, digital piracy against "unfriendly countries" has been legalized. Under the new law, it is allowed to use digital materials without the consent of foreign copyright holders. A Belarusian legislator explains this decision as the need to develop society's intellectual, spiritual, and moral potential and reduce the critical deficit in the domestic market of food and other goods. Also passed in the lower house was a law allowing Belarusian authorities to seize foreign citizens' and companies' money, securities, and property rights. (PolishNews)
