Russian music site targeted by law enforcement

Some of those unwilling to purchase lossy music from the iTunes Music Store and other music download services have turned to Russian site AllofMP3.com. In operation for longer than most music stores, AllofMP3.com offers DRM-free, lossless tracks from any number of artists many of whom have not actually authorized the release of their songs online for as little as 4¢ per song. Acting on a litany of complaints over the years from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry and other copyright holders, the Moscow City Police Computer Crimes Division has completed an investigation and recommended the site owners face copyright infringement charges.
