The Register notes that the Russian prosecutor won’t be taking action against Allofmp3.com, thanks to a loophole in Russian copyright law. I’m still unsure whether using the site is legal or illegal for you or I, though – any legally-minded types willing to hazard a guess?
Legality aside, Allofmp3.com is a great way of providing music: you pick the tunes, choose the format, select the bitrate and then pay according to the resulting file size. So if you want 128Kbps MP3s, you can – but if you want the original WAV files, you can have them too. If only our legal download shops would do the same.
