+ - RIAA Sues AllofMP3 in US Court

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Ars Technica is reporting that the big music labels have filed suit in NY court against Mediaservices, Inc, the parent company of AllofMP3.com. A copy of the lawsuit seen by Ars Technica claims that AllofMP3's business "amounts to nothing more than a massive infringement of Plaintiffs' exclusive rights under the Copyright Act and New York law." The suit seeks control of the AllofMP3.com domain as well as monetary damages. As MP3 Newswire astutely asks what is the point of suing a company that US and Russian trade negotiators already agreed to shut down? It's all conjecture, but the RIAA suit suggests AllofMP3 may be in position to delay any such closure. A peek at Alexa shows that, despite the bilateral agreement and a pullout from the major credit card companies, traffic to the site has increased over the last three months."

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
