Russia's anti-piracy law triggers protests

Demonstrators are out in force to collect 100,000 signatures calling for the law to be repealed.

    A new internet anti-piracy law is about to come into effect in Russia.

    It is designed to crack down on copyright infringement, but critics fear it could be used to stifle political debate.

    Demonstrators have been staging protests in the Russian capital, and trying to collect 100,000 signatures calling for the law to be repealed.
