RIAA Seized Confusing MP3Skull Domain

RIAA Seized Confusing MP3Skull Domain

The RIAA continues its efforts to tackle online piracy and has seized the domain name of yet another MP3Skull website. The problem is that the site in question has nothing to do with the original service, so RIAA’s actions may appear illegal.

Back in April 2015, the RIAA filed a lawsuit against MP3Skull, the MP3 download service that used to be one of the most popular sources of pirated music. The federal court ruled in favor of the RIAA and awarded the labels over $22 million in damages. Moreover, the RIAA obtained a permanent injunction which allowed it to seize MP3Skull’s domain names.

Paying no attention to the million dollar verdict, MP3Skull continued to operate through a variety of new domain names, which the RIAA subsequently targeted. The latest domain name used was MP3Skull.vg, which initially served the original MP3 download portal. The interesting part began late last month, when MP3Skull.vg started redirecting to MP3Skull.onl, an unrelated YouTube converter and direct download portal.

Once people began confusing the two services, MP3Skull.onl distanced themselves from their namesake, and claimed they had no idea why the original site was redirecting to them. Indeed, there are no signs that these two services are connected. Nevertheless, the RIAA is still confused and even seized the MP3Skull.onl domain name without warning, using the original MP3Skull injunction. In other words, the RIAA has seized a domain name of an unrelated third party. Of course, there is ground to argue that MP3Skull.onl was also facilitating copyright infringement, but in no way it could have been targeted by an injunction issued against an entirely different service.
