Allofmp3 Pissed Off At Credit Card Companies; Plans To Fight Back

from the no-surprise-there dept

Yesterday, we mentioned that Visa had dumped Allofmp3, saying it would no longer process credit cards for the site. Today, Mastercard followed suit. This has Allofmp3 a bit angry, saying that they will do whatever possible to get credit card processing turned back on. They point out, once again, that they have never been convicted of any illegal activity, and previous investigations have shown them to be legal. Of course, just because you're legal, doesn't mean that a credit card company has to process your transactions.

    Annoymous Coward's Comment

    You do realize that its individuals like you that drive people to look for alternative means of getting media? If the damn movie or recording industry realized that 'we' (those who use sites like allofmp3) don't mind paying for something as long as its not .99 a song or 14.99 a cd, then maybe they would come up with a better business model to bring in this available audience. People are not going to keep paying high prices for stuff they can get cheaper or free. It's time that the business model changes, and they stop whining about piracy and sites like allofmp3. They could actually make more money if they addressed the growing crowd of people that are venturing away from the traditional way of buying.
