In a move that will likely boost sales at the iTMS (and increase pirating), Russia has agreed to shut down Allofmp3. I'm not sure how I feel about this. If the Russian rights-holding group was indeed not authorized to distribute the copyrighted American works, then I could understand the pressure to cease that distribution. But, they also sell Russian music - which I would presume is being distributed legally. While Putin's government interfering in the free market is not surprising, it is disconcerting. Also bothersome is that the RIAA has enough clout to have set Russian policy just so that Moscow can get into the WTO.
