Court rejects Yandex complaint against blocking of pirated copies of Gazprom-Media TV series

MOSCOW. Sept 7 (Interfax) - The Moscow City Court's appeals board has rejected a request by Yandex to unblock pirated copies of TV series available in the Yandex.Video service.

"Individual complaints against rulings to enforce injunctions requested by the TV companies 2x2, TV-3, Parnas-Media (Super) were considered by the appeals board but not granted," Ulyana Solopova, a spokeswoman for the court, told Interfax.

She said a fourth individual complaint from Yandex against a similar request by the TNT channel would be heard soon.

Another four Yandex motions will be heard in the second half of September. Rulings on these will be handed down by judges who earlier imposed disputed injunctive measures.
