Anonymous Coward sent a link to lyrics.mguk.ru/
, operating under the name LyricsDot
, which looks a lot like the old non-profit www.lyrics.ch database
did before it signed an agreement
with the (U.S. based) National Music Publishers Association
and went commercial
. The trick with this new lyrics server is that it's in Russia, where U.S. law (and copyright law in general) seems to mean little or nothing. Is this the wave of the future? Will other sites containing data that violates copyrights or otherwise irritates large U.S. companies move to Russia or other countries where local authorities are unlikely to cooperate with American law enforcers? It's going to be interesting to see where this all goes.
