Wednesday, July 25, 2007 Owner Facing Jail Time Over Laws That Didn't Exist

The former head of the popular-yet-shady MP3 site is looking at some jail time and some hefty fines in his home country of Russia now that his site has been shut down. The authorities say he owes the RIAA a bunch of money and was violating all sorts of copyright laws. The only problem is, well, that he didn't actually break any Russian laws by running the site.
I imagine the Juice will be contributing to his defense fund. He was pretty distraught when they closed them down last year.
