Only one-fourth of Russian Internet users are willing to pay for online content, polling group Public Opinion Foundation said in a survey presented Thursday.

MOSCOW, October 18 (RIA Novosti) – Only one-fourth of Russian Internet users are willing to pay for online content, polling group Public Opinion Foundation said in a survey presented Thursday.

Russia has stepped up Internet regulations in recent months. A law against online film piracy that came into force in August is due to be expanded by the end of the year to cover all forms of copyright infringement.

Technology news service Digit.ru reported that the results of the survey, which was presented at the Russian Internet Week 2013 event currently taking place in Moscow, showed 25 percent of respondents as saying they are ready to pay for watching or downloading movies. Twenty-two percent said they would pay for music, while 26 percent were prepared to spend money on books, the survey showed.

According to the poll, conducted in mid-September among 1,000 respondents over 18 years old, some 80 percent of active online users have heard about the new antipiracy law.

Thirty-four percent support the law, while 49 percent are opposed to it. Sixteen percent were undecided.
