    This is still the US trying to have its both ways.

    For music they screamed copyright theft when in Russia a website was set up that alledgedly complied with Russian law and paid the correct royalty rate (as determined by the Russian copyright collection agency) but copyright holders had not given consent.

    For books a big US company sets up a website, does a deal with the copyright agency to pay an agreed royalty rate and copyright owners are not asked to consent (although they can withdraw their books).

    Total hypocracy
