It has just come to our attention that another website might be once again fucking the whole industry while selling music at incredibly low prices…
After further check in regards to the aforementioned, here’s what we found as stated on the ‘help’ section:
Is it legal to download music from ~~~.com
Our new members often ask us is it legal to download digital content from ~~~.com and the answer is "Definitely Yes. It is completely legal to download music from our site."
The availability over the Internet of the ~~~.com materials is authorized by the license # LS-3М-06-60 of the Russian Multimedia and Internet Society (ROMS). In accordance to the licenses' terms ~~~ Inc pays license fees for all materials downloaded from the site subject to the Law of the Russian Federation "On Copyright and Related Rights". All these materials are solely for personal use. Any further distribution, resale or broadcasting are prohibited.
Hard to believe though that a license may have been given to a website where you may buy albums for US$ 0.15!!! This bringing us back to countless affairs where Russian platforms have been found responsible of illegal operations in a recent past…
Don’t count on us though to have its name revealed here, and this to avoid makin’ its promotion to 1000’s of readers.
