The contentious Russian music download site allofmp3.com looks set to resume business after a Moscow court ruled it was legal under the country's law.
A statement on the website, shut down in July, said the service would resume "in the foreseeable future".
Before it closed, the cut-price music site claimed to be the second biggest seller of downloads after iTunes.
It was the subject of countless lawsuits from UK and US record labels that claimed it violated copyright law.
A representative of the music industry said if it started trading again it would still be in "clear violation of copyright laws".
I hope they do, fook the robbing barstard record companies! BBC News Report
