Torrent Freak broke news yesterday about a new application called “Mulve”, which promised a ‘safer’ way for users to acquire music, albeit and quite obviously illegally. The Mulve application is a 2mb desktop app that looks just like a typical P2P app. The difference is that Mulve promises no file sharing or scraping from internet searches, and untrackable sourcing of files for users. In fact the files appeared to come “straight from servers designed for the job”. Investigations by Torrent Freak revealed that some of the tracks came from Russian servers connected to Vkontakte, the Russian equivalent of Facebook – detailed in our recent country profile of Russia – and a notorious hub of illegal activity. But when we had a look this morning, the server displayed a message saying that the website had been disabled. That was quick! The question is, will it be back?
