has trouble with online payments, the MP3 music web site publishing from the territory of Russia is in real trouble. Probably really pissed of by the very low prices found there and because AllOfMp3 does not include Digital Rights Management (DRM) in the downloaded MP3 files (some of the copyright holders even tell that the sale is completely illegal in the absence of a direct contract between AllOfMp3 and them), some American companies apparently pressured Visa and MasterCard into denying the music site the means to collect online payments using the credit cards of these two major networks.

Of course, this is threatening directly the short-term viability of the company. They are currently thinking of both legal actions and offering completely free downloads that would be financed by advertisment.
