"The DA's office determined that while Allofmp3's action are in fact
theoretically illigal - they do not have the permission of all the
artists they feature on the website to distribute their music - in the
Russian copyright law there is no specific prohibition of digital
distribution over the internet, thus the law couldn't be applied
against them."
