Yandex Buys Russia's Biggest Online Movie Database

Leading search engine Yandex has purchased KinoPoisk, Russia's largest online movie resource, the company said in a statement October 15.

While the cost of the deal has not been disclosed, people close to the company said that it was likely to have run into tens of millions of dollars, Itar-Tass reported.

Yandex intends to use KinoPoisk's immense and largely user-generated database, which includes more than 100 million movie ratings with about 3 million more contributed each month, to develop services that will recommend movies based on users' personal interests, the statement said.
