    allofmp3.com

    allofmp3.com abides by the copyright laws of Russia and DOES pay the RMIS, the Russian equivalent of the RIAA licensing fees.

    By Russian law, royalties are paid to the Russian Multimedia and Internet Society which is a non-profit. Royalties are then distributed to the Music companies by the RMIS, but they have to request payment. The RIAA (or it's member companies) HAS NOT REQUESTED PAYMENT.

    Furthermore there is a system in place to have items removed from a seller's catalog (Like allofmp3). According to allofmp3, none of the RIAA member companies have submitted a request to have anything removed.

    Under these circumstances, it is libelous to refer to them as a "pirate website". While I'm not a lawyer, I'd imagine this article's author, and or this publication may be subject to legal action, provided allofmp3 wanted to push it (which they probably won't).

    It's safer to refer to them as "A**holes", or as being "Afoul of the RIAA". However if their statements and those of the RMIS are true, they are following Russian law to the letter. US Law/RIAA demands do not, and should not Apply to them.
