If the Russian organization actually works to protect the interests of copyright owners I could see this as being a valid exercise. Used to be copyrights had to be registered in the US and afaik that wasn’t free.

However, I somehow doubt that this organization actually does all that much to fight piracy and other activities anemical to artists.
