PUTIN signs law curbing foreign ownership in "Russlan Media"

President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a widely criticized bill limiting foreign ownership in Russian media assets to 20 percent, according to a document published Wednesday on the government's legal information website.


The law will force some of the world's largest media companies — including Conde Nast, Hearst Corporation and Axel Springer — to sell off or shut down their Russian assets by Feb. 1, 2017.

It will also directly impact The Moscow Times' owner Sanoma Independent Media, the Russian branch of Finnish media group Sanoma and one of Russia's largest publishing houses.

The media bill galloped from proposal to new legal reality in under a month over the objections of industry players and the companies concerned. An earlier law had limited foreign shares in radio and television to 50 percent but bypassed print media.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
