IFPI relaunch pro-music website

The IFPI have announced the re-launch of the newly redesigned website - a simple information resource for anyone looking to find out more about legitimate digital music services and copyright law across the world.

The IFPI also  welcomed the latest in a series of rulings by Russian courts against vKontakte, the country’s leading social networking site that facilitates the mass distribution of copyright infringing music. The Arbitration Court of St Petersburg and Leningrad ordered vKontakte to pay damages of 550,000 roubles (€13,718) to SBA Gala Records, an independent Russian record label and licensed distributor for EMI Music’s international repertoire, for its role in facilitating the illegal distribution of 11 unlicensed sound recordings online
