Sony Says Raising Prices On Whitney Houston Music Was A 'Mistake'
from the ya-think? dept
Following the news that Sony Music raised prices on Whitney Houston’s music very, very soon after news broke that she passed away, the company has now said that it was a “mistake” and issued an apology:
“Whitney Houston product was mistakenly mispriced on the UK iTunes store on Sunday. When discovered, the mistake was immediately corrected. We apologize for any offense caused.”
Of course, that seems to raise more questions than it answers. What kind of “mistake”? Human error? Did someone just accidentally jack up the price? Or was it someone doing it on purpose… and Sony now thinks that his or her decision to do so was the mistake?
