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.

    Man AllofMp3 was great!
    I spent years spending 100 pounds a month on CDs. It was all I could afford and I only got to listen to 1 tenth of the music I wanted to. Then AllofMp3 came along - spending the same amount I could get more music that I had time to listen to. Frankly I couldn't give a flying Fu@k about the 'morality' or legality of it. The music industry was RIPPING me off for years - I give them thousands for very little in return. I will never pay so much for music again. Either the music industry can lower its prices or they can get stuffed. Now I must go, got to do some research in to private P2P apps.
