    The RIAA appear to be becoming more of a joke each day. I can't help but feel very happy about iit.

    They know that $1.65 trillion is a silly number, so what do they expect? The RIAA are ridiculous. Think of all the money they could save by dumping all of their lawyers. :D

    hmmm if I had 1.65Trillion dollars, you know what I'd do? buy the rights to all the music known to man and sell a copy for a penny a track.. oh... hang on... someones already selling it for the right price... silly me..

    [edit] isn't it funny how 1.65T$ equates to just about £0.85B some people don't know what a billion really is...

    I dunno, I have to wonder if this won't end up hurting AOMP3. I mean, when the WTO BS was going on every other week there was a story about how they were going the be shut down any day now. I mean, you can't BUY that kind of advertising! Now that the RIAA has had to resort to their trusty aresnal or lawyers since their wholly owned politicians failed. Go AOMP3!!! :thumb:

    Since we're on the subject, I couldn't reccomend allofmp3's service more. Excellent store.

    Good luck to the RIAA on suing a small russian company for a little under the GDP of the United Kingdom. I'm sure they'll do just fine.

    Crappy ISP

    Could someone please post the reply or throw me a link or something, so I can actually read the reply AllOfMP3 made? I happen to be so fortunate that I live in Denmark and my ISP, like almost all other Danish ISPs, has blocked that particular site... :rolleyes:

    Wow, danish ISP's are blocking sites they don't like? That's pretty lame given the fact that there's nothing illegal in and of itself about allofmp3.

    Response in full

    An attempt by the major record labels to use a U.S. court to as part of its campaign against AllofMP3.com is imprudent.

    AllofMP3 understands that several US record label companies filed a lawsuit against Mediaservices in New York. This suit is unjustified as AllofMP3.com does not operate in New York. Certainly the labels are free to file any suit they wish, despite knowing full well that AllofMP3.com operates legally in Russia.

    In the mean time, AllofMP3.com plans to continue to operate legally and comply with all Russian laws.

    Yeah, good luck RIAA. US threats are basically no good on a non US business. As if others haven't been trying for months or years to get Allofmp3 eradicated. Maybe they should just get a hint and accept that ...people like cheap downloads and allofmp3 has a perfect business model unlike their own aging way of doing business.

    Well, it's not by choice, I can tell you that. There was a lawsuit or something and one ISP was told, by the court, to deny access to AllOfMP3 to their customers. The other ISPs saw the writting on the wall and denied access to their users too.

    That is incredibly lame. I guess you can probably use proxies no bother, but it still sucks for your country to be doing that.
