AllofMP3.com Lives Yet

Despite a US-Russian trade agreement in which Russia agreed to close legal-in-its-own mind AllofMP3.com (see prior post), the pesky Russian site continues to operate, bearing an enthusiastic “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!” and running a Christmas sale. Apparently tired by the trade agreement’s failure to eliminate the site, the New York Times reported today that various recording companies filed a federal court lawsuit in Manhattan seeking an injunction to force AllofMP3.com’s closure. The lawsuit argues that the site’s “claims of legitimacy” make it more problematic than unabashedly illicit sites. AllofMP3.com states it sells music pursuant to legitimate Russian licenses, but ROMS, the Russian licensing site on which AllofMP3.com pins its copyright virtue, was expelled from an international royalty-collection association “for issuing licenses without authorization from copyright holders.”
