This may be old news, but it turns out that the journal Russian Studies in Literature has had several special issues on Russian literature and the Internet. As the editor John Givens indicates in the introduction to Vol. 41, no 2. (2005), this special issue is about the reasons behind and reactions to the appearance of Russian literature on the Internet. The heading of this post is the title of just one of the articles in this issue. Also Vol. 36, no. 2 (2000) was devoted to the role of literary institutions on the Internet.
