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.

    alternatives?

    paypal, neteller, are 2 obvious incredibly easy and convenient alternatives that come to mind.

    seems like an easy way to get around the CC companies checks.


    listen, honestly, an artist is going to pull at least 2-3 million dollars cash in pocket out of a hit record.

    That's more then you, I, our neighbor joe, his sister jan, and their dog markus, make in a decade+ .

    Boo hoo about you not making 30 million.

    Get real, this isn't ever going to be stopped. NEVER. Ever ever ever ever ever. And a secondary point lies in the fact that IF this does get stopped, there was way too much attention by the feds on this then on serious issues.

    Really guys, sure artists deserve some money, and they get it, they also get their music delivered globally, to a much larger audience then one that would have purchased it from a Target or the like for full price for a CD.


    I just think this whole debate is silly tbh, they won't be stopped, russia can laugh in the US's face. what are they going to do? after iraq invade russia for oil?
