Ok, let me may be provide a bit of a background.

1) The law is formally directed against child pornography, drug
trafficking, hate between religions etc. The idea is that every
website (whatever it means) where information violating the law has
been discovered will get a one-day notice to remove the info, and if
it fails to do so, the access to the whole website will be blocked by
all providers legally operating in Russia. On paper, nothing in this
law threats Wikipedia and sister projects.


The law just passed the third reading without any changes. It has to be now signed by the president and will be enforced in the present form on November 1, 2012.

Cheers
