Mulve Accused of Conspiracy to Defraud

After police arrested a UK guy related to the Mulve downloading application last week, now the grounds for the arrest are revealed. They are, like with the completely failed OiNK case, Conspiracy to Defraud. According to the Mulve’s programmer, something has really gone wrong with the investigation connected to the downloading software. Meanwhile, Mulve’s clones are hitting the Internet.


The innovative music downloading software Mulve provided its users with search for content hosted on the servers of Russian largest social network InTouch (vKontakte). However, recently the application went down because the police suddenly arrested one of its developers.

Since it became clear that police of the United Kingdom had arrested a Mulve’s creator on grounds of Conspiracy to Defraud, many recalled the case against OiNK administrator Alan Ellis, who had suffered from the same accusations. It’s unclear, however, why the police after failing the case against Ellis had chosen to go with the same accusation against another individual.

It was back in 2008, when one of the Mulve’s developers discovered that InTouch had such a huge database of music that many advanced Russian users no longer downloaded music, but streamed it using InTouch. As the developer didn’t like the interface of the social network, he decided to create his own. The code he developed allowed the application to work out the bitrate of the music file and a link to the file on InTouch. This year the code was rebranded to give birth to Mulve.

Anyway, several key points were clear: first, Mulve never hosted any music files itself, but linked to the files hosted on the servers of InTouch, freely available to any network’s member. Next, the application wasn’t a search engine, but only an alternative interface for the InTouch search. Finally, Mulve was never promoted for infringing uses. And yet the authorities decided to arrest a guy on suspicion of Conspiracy to Defraud. The most interesting fact is that the guy has never even seen the source code. Moreover, he has no idea how to program. The police got him just because the domain was in his name for one day.

Meanwhile, Mulve has got at least two different clones so far – PirateApp and Mulve Phoenix. Besides, any user can spend 5 minutes to register at InTouch and stream music freely.

menahunie avatarSo how is this guy being charged in Britain and the servers for the music is in another country?
Who is the Defraud Plaintiff? Is the British Gov. making the case as the plaintiff?
InTouch hasn't file a criminal case against this guy?
Something political stinks and it ain't dog crap...
