Last week we told you about an incredibly easy to use music downloading app called Mulve which has got everyone on the Internet excited but, which at the same time raised questions over his imminent quick shutdown.
Well, that shutdown came even earlier than expected courtesy of whom other than the mighty RIAA. As TorrentFreak reports, the RIAA had not legal ground to attack the majority of the service, but still because Mulve had a portion of its site hosted with USA-based Hostgator was able to take it down with one DMCA cease-and-desist letter.
While Mulve is confident that they will not ne offline too long no specific date for its return was mentioned.
Update: Those who liked Mulve can get Pirateapp, an open source variant of Mulve that downloads music from the same place at the same impressive speeds.
