The Metropolitan Police has shut down an online voucher system for the allofmp3.com music downloads service following a dawn raid in Bow, London.
The IFPI and BPI allege that the system was being used by the unauthorised Russian music download website allofmp3.com to try and sidestep credit card companies' decisions to block payments to the site. They claim that the arrested man was the UK-based European agent for allofmp3.com, facilitating the sale of digital downloads by advertising and selling vouchers through auction sites. These include eBay and the website allofmp3vouchers.co.uk, which has now been removed from the Web.
The £10 vouchers contained a code that allowed UK and European consumers to access and download music from the allofmp3.com website.
