I'm not sure who's in the right here
it's a pretty complicated subject. i don't really blame the labels for doing what they're doing.
CD Wow had signed an agreement that they would not ship cheap goods from elsewhere into Europe and then broke that agreement.
It is similar to a case a few years ago when Asda (I think)tried to sell Levi jeans and undercut the company.
CD Wow may claim to be the consumers friend, but in business terms, they are trying to pull a fast one.
I think this had been on the cards for some time.
but i doubt that any of the BPI companies would do any different if they didnt already have the monopoly.
Personally im more against them demanding THAT much money, when essentially they dont need or deserve it.
if they're buying and selling legitimate goods then the only thing they've done wrong is breach that agreement
41million to pay and having all their assets frozen certainly seems a tad harsh
the wonderful world of internet commerce :)
I mean I just went onto the website and they are still offering CD's at around the £7 mark?! Will the prices be going up in the future?!
to 41 million pounds.
but how do the people selling me really cheap, new CDs off the Amazon Marketplace get away with it? Are they not imported?
