We knew it would happen eventually. A group of record labels filed suit against Russian music site AllofMP3.com, the Associated Press reported. The plaintiffs include Arista Records, Warner Bros., Capitol Records and UMG Recordings, the AP reported.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in New York on Wednesday, alleges that the company is making a profit by selling copyrighted songs without permission. The Moscow-based site charges around $1 for most albums, and has been under fire in the United States for some time, although it claims it is compliant with Russian copyright law.
