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.

    I totally agree with your comments. I was trying to something along the same lines. I do and have used the itunes music store and all I do not use bit torrents and P2P. I am more than willing to pay for music. But not at the current prices that exist. If the music labels realized how many people would be willing to cough up loads of money on non-drm, cheaper music, they'd be making profits left and right. Instead, they load up the music with DRM and piss people off, who then go and find it elsewhere. Change the business model, and they'd be amazed at the results.
