The music labels of Sony, Universal and Warner have taken Apple to court in Russia because three apps in the App Store offer free music. That reports Torrent Freak.

The music apps MewPee, iMus and Offline Music Download allow users to listen to music without paying for it. It is unclear where the apps get their songs, but according to the record labels, the files are illegally distributed.

By going to court, the companies hope that Apple will quickly remove the software from its app store. While Apple didn’t make the apps, the tech giant can remove software that breaks the rules.

With the lawsuit, the music companies are taking advantage of a new Russian law that forces tech companies to quickly remove illegally offered material. If Apple does not respond to this, the company risks being blocked by internet providers in the country.

According to lawyer Roman Lukyanov, who is advocating the case on behalf of the music labels, the lawsuit is a ‘test drive’ to see how the new law is implemented in practice. The case should clarify how quickly Apple is willing to remove apps under legal pressure.
