Boing Boing: finally shut down by Russian authorities
The existence of this grey-market music site once represented a threat to Russia’s entry into the World Trade Organisation. has been shut down now, after the United States condemned Russia for failing to crack down on illicit filesharing. Link. Apparently an alternative site just popped up, under the same management?

Well, I don’t think this is filesharing. Isn’t filesharing free? No, this Russian site is a pirate, because they are selling music for profit but they don’t pay any of the artists even a penny. In other words, they are selling stolen goods. They are already back up at a different URL.
