Don’t do the memes or Russia’s boogeymen will get you!
Roskomnadzor, Russia’s media regulator, reminded the world recently that memes of popular people are in essence illegal! So don’t you dare meme! Don’t do it!
Apparently, memes in Russia can get you sued and/or get your website banned across the entire country.
“These ways of using [celebrities’ images] violate the laws governing personal data and harm the honor, dignity and business of public figures,” – Roskomnadzor
