Mp3Spark.com: Allofmp3.com in Drag?
Since the USTR made it clear to Russia that allofmp3.com constituted an obstacle to the latter’s entry to the WTO, the writing has been on the wall. Visa and other payment companies withdrew service from the site in January, and now the site has disappeared, without much of explanation. In a formula reminiscent of another epoch, ‘closed by the Kremlin’ is all we are to be told. In the meantime the company behind the domain name has launched a new operation, Mp3Spark.com, which by all accounts provides a stunningly similar user experience, to the point that user names and passwords from the deceased site function on the new arrival. Methinks the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry will not be amused.
