Popular messenger Telegram for the first few years of its existence, has blocked the channel violating copyright when you distribute audio content. Earlier, the service administration has removed only the content from pirate channels, but full lock has never reached. As it turned out, the developers of Telegram have taken this step under pressure from Apple and Google.
The channel Creator “All fit pop” Anton Vagin confirmed that the Telegram was blocked his channel without any warnings.
It is interesting that later on the website of Roskomnadzor in Facebook appeared the following message:
The messenger Telegram for the first time blocked the channel, which distributes audio content from copyright infringement.
Join forces in the fight for legal content.
Later, Pavel Durov, founder of Telegram, said that Google issued an ultimatum demanding the blocking of a channel. It is reported that the complaint came from the search giant and Apple at the request of Universal Music. The fact that the creators of the channel “All fit POPs” has published a pirated copy of the album, Reputation of the singer Taylor swift, released through Big Machine Records, which is owned by Universal Music.
It is not excluded that now the Telegram would more actively monitor the content published to the channels.
