Submission + - AllOfMP3 gone for good this time?

SuperGus writes: Back in June AllOfMP3 released the following statement:

"On September 1, 2006 the changes to the Russian copyright legislation will come into force. Since January 2006 the site has been making direct agreements with rightholders and authors at the same time increasing the price of the music compositions and transferring the royalties directly to the artists and record companies. The aim of is to agree with all rightholders on the prices and royalties amounts by September 1, 2006."

Starting in September MP3 stopped accepting credit cards as payment. Now it appears the site is down (at least from my country), and it's not the first time since August. Did the RIAA and BPI finally have their way with AllOfMP3? Its sister site AllTunes is still alive, but perhaps not for long?

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
