Hypebot interviewed The Orchard CEO Greg Scholl. Among the topics: Digital downloads in Russia. Scholl seems to take a balanced approach:

"There are two approaches to engaging with others: unilateral saber-rattling and aggressive rhetoric, and constructive dialog toward jointly developed goals that are in the interests of both parties."

... and then quickly forgets what he just said:

"AllofMP3.com is an illegal service that hurts artists, labels and the industry, and we support the BPI’s efforts to shut it down, full stop."

If it only was that easy.
