Popular Russian allofmp3.com website closed down for good?

Love it or hate it allofmp3.com seems to be dying slowly but surely. The website credited for being one of UK's most visited music download websites attracted much criticism recently for not complying to international copyrights laws.

A few days after reportedly snatching 14% of the UK market share, far behind Apple's iTunes massive 44%, AllofMP3.com and its desktop version website, alltunes.com seem to have faded from the internet and there is a message on the website saying that the server is closed for maintenance.

Its popularity and sudden apparent demise comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to reinforce the war on piracy within the borders of Russia.

Allofmp3.com made the headlines by offering unbeatable prices on MP3 download at $0.11 and foregoing the payment to the copyright holders.
