allofmp3 ???!!!

Regards: U.K. music industry to sue AllofMP3.com

Need some advice, should I stop using allofmp3?
I have used them for about 2-3 months now and spend about $20-$40/week on music on some weeks, other weeks about $5-$10 because i am a big music fan.

I dont want to loose any money or be affected by this. Should I keep using them?

Anyone could tell that what they do is wrong, BUT no-one has ever proven this in a (Russian) court of law. Until then it is a fully legal service and I would use them without a problem.
Taking them to court in the UK seems to me far fetched as they are a Russian company.... Also telling that using them is illegal is ridicules as they first have to prove that they are illegal...

Keep in mind that from the 1st of September 2006 their prices will (most likely) be raised as a new Russian copyright law will be in effect then

Music

The music is not expensive enough to be legally. I think this is an illegal downloadsite.

You don't understand, do you? If Russian law doesn't prohibit the duplication of (some) copyrighted material, e.g. music CD's, then that site is, by definition, NOT illegal (in Russia). Of course, it's cheap as they buy only one copy of each CD and sell zillion copies of it on the site...

... while more than half of the Internet's traffic is spam, which costs like a hundred times more than kids stealing games. And, for that matter, millions of people are dying of hunger, thirst, AIDS and tribe wars in the third world. Noone seems to care about that...

Smile Hunger and thirst !!

There is almost no hunger on this planet but strong thirst. But who cares, the main thing is that laws have to stay like nowaday to keep this site alive. "Viel weniger verlangen ja die Kollegen von AllofMP3 in Russland, das ja laut IFPI ein nicht legal operierender Musikshop ist."
