Thanks for the correction.
That means that the people who physically host the server would
be subject to the safe harbor provisions of the DMCA if any
interested party makes a complaint to them and the hoster would
be protected as long as they remove the material upon demand.
It's a shoot first and determine fault later situation with consequences
only for the alleged infringer.
Since the US claims the right to prosecute anyone in the world
under American law viv a vis copyright, the entrant in this case is
vulnerable should _Machine Head_ decide to take action, or
as is more likely the RIAA, as agent for _Machine Head_, decides
to make an example of Mr. Artemenko.
As Adobe vs. Elcomsoft/Sklyarov has recently shown, any possible
defense under Russian copyright law will be irrelevant.
