Russian social network Vkontakte, the most popular service in the country, has been described by the USTR as one of the most notorious pirate markets ever, despite the site’s cooperation with copyright owners. The site operators announced their plans to proactively license all the content available on its platform.

The USTR has released its annual report calling on foreign countries to take action against services involved in copyright violation. Of course, some portals that are included in the list are undeniably infringing – for example, The Pirate Bay. However, some other sites don’t fit the same profile.

For instance, Vkontakte (VK) accounts for millions of users uploading content to its service on a daily basis. As it usually occurs in such cases, VK has to deal with allegations of copyright infringement and has even made its peace with a number of music distributors via licensing deals. Nevertheless, the network in still mentioned in the review of the United States Trade Representative.

In fact, the Russian site has already reached deals with major music labels and taken steps to limit third-party apps allowing to download infringing content. It was even noticed experimenting with fingerprinting technology. For example, the Recording Industry Association of America recently said it was happy with Vkontakte and took it off its list this past fall. So how did it make into the USTR list? Apparently, the copyright holders outside the music industry are still complaining about it.

In response, VKontakte shows an unexpected level of patience, confirming that it continues proactive work on licensing all audio and video content available on the portal and has already signed an agreement with Universal Music, Sony Music, Warner Music, The Orchard, Merlin Network, Believe Digital, and others.
