Record Industry Will Appeal AllofMP3 Ruling
Stinging from its loss in the Russian courts, prosecutors and the recording industry pledged to appeal the dismissal of a case against former Allofmp3 and Mediaservices head Denis Kvasov. According to a spokesperson for the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), the plaintiffs have one week to file their appeal.
A Russian District Court judge found that the prosecution did not have sufficient evidence to back up their charges and threw the case out earlier this week. The IFPI has not elaborated on what their basis for an appeal would be, however it continued to stress that AllofMP3 operated "in clear violation of copyright law."
