For those of you with an allofmp3.com account, you have no doubt noticed that you are unable to access the site. Unfortunately, pressure from American dope hats (aka politicians, aka people who like to stick their noses in places where it doesn’t belong) to get President Putin to crack down on media piracy has been successful.
As leverage, the U.S. politicos blocked Russia’s bid for entry into the WTO, the only country that has failed to approve entry.
Putin wants in pretty badly, and who can blame him? An organization that draws up the rules for world trade… who wouldn’t want to be a member? He wanted in so badly, that he went ahead and cracked down on allofmp3.com, shutting them down.
The good news? allofmp3.com has simply changed their name and reopened their doors for non-DRM music downloads. Check out mp3sparks.com. Beautiful, isn’t it?
Down with DRM!
