RIAA gets $22M default judgment against “brazen and egregious” MP3 website

Record labels have won a copyright lawsuit against MP3Skull, a website that linked to MP3 song files from around the Web. MP3Skull lost the case in a default judgment, because it never came to court to defend itself.

The labels sued MP3Skull in April 2015, calling it a “very popular rogue website” devoted to “the massive, brazen, and egregious theft of millions of copyrighted sound recordings.” They didn’t know who owned the site, but a summons was issued to Monica Vasilenko of Petrozavodsk, Russia, the name last listed as the site owner.
