+ - Russia uses piracy raids to suppress dissent->

Submitted by twistedcubic
twistedcubic (577194) writes "The New York Times reports that Russian police use software piracy raids as an excuse to suppress dissenting groups, such as Baikal Environmental Wave, who oppose the reopening of a paper mill which dumps waste chemicals in Lake Baikal. The environmental group says it purchased Microsoft software to avoid a raid, to no avail. Many such groups have the charges dismissed in court, but this apparently does not stop the government."
