Allofmp3.com Down, MP3sparks Up, iTunes ...

Update: (und damit endet auch die Berichterstattung zu diesem Vorgang)
nachdem MP3sparks down ist gibt es jetzt alltunes.com

Nach fast einem Jahr is allofmp3.com jetzt vom Netz und MP3sparks online



vom gleichen Unternehmen, MediaServices Moskau, wie Guardian Unlimited: im technology blog heute berichtet und mit den gleichen Argumenten, warum der Vertrieb unter russischem Recht legal sei (The Times, UK).

Nowaja Gaseta schreibt dazu (5-June-2007):
On Tuesday, the official information agency reported the closure of the musical online-magazina allofmp3.com. Officially, it was closed by Russian authorities because of pressure from the United States.

Although allofmp3.com not violated Russian legislation , the rest of the world believe it pirated. The reason is that the existing law on copyright and related rights web does not necessarily enter into a contract directly with the copyright holder, but rather to agree with the so-called collective rights management societies.These companies may license for the sale of tracks even those performers with whom they have not been contracted for a virtual music seller enough time to allocate the money. Thus, the value of a music file to allofmp3.com was 0,1-0,2 $ 0.9 to $ iTunes from their main competitor in the international market for music online.

But MediaServices company, which owned the site, was not thinking changed hosts, opening a portal-old identical mp3sparks.com. So once again you can buy almost any track records for the 10 American cents. " more (in Russian language)

Passt gut zu der Meldung der New York Times, dass Vivendi's Universal Music Group Apple informiert hat, dass man den Vertrag über die Vertriebsrechte via iTunes nicht verlängern wird.
Selbermachen steht an ...
