Interesting. The company is probably doomed now.

Hmmmm, so the record companies are price fixing?

How can it be against copyright if it is a CD produced by the record company?

Confusing. It is also bad for the recording companies as it is likely that some CD-Wow customers will now turn to (illegal) downloading and others will buy less CDs. And the record companies don't like us downloading, or buying less.

The BPI would not comment on the impact the settlement would have on UK consumers who had been using CD-Wow!.

the company in question is prob not doomed.

as it is turning over 100m pa

moreover it is only cds that are affected. dvds and games are not affected for it.

the money that them and play.com turnover is PHENOMENAL

Ive been buying all my CD's from this firm since I think around 2001 - if they can sell them this cheap why cant UK stores?

The company will survive but it opens up some interesting points - I can only see this as price fixing. The CDs are genuine so whats wrong with them selling them?
