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.

    people want stuff for free? this is new to you???

    of course people want things for free, it's greed.

    it's simple supply and demand. @a certain price, a certain number of people will pay for the product. when supply is reduced, prices go up. as supply increases, price decreases. since digital media is virtually infinate, the price drops down to zero. so of course it's easy to get something for free.

    now, what if i sit in my basement, and (like google) create every combination of ever "digital note" possible. because all digital music is, is just a bunch of 0s and 1s arranged into bits representing waveforms.

    ugh...i wish there was no thing as money. everything was free.
