BT faces enquiry over 'unlimited' dotmusic claims

  TOPCAT® 19:52 07 Mar 2003

Trading standards officers have been notified over accusations that BT is "misleading" the public by calling its new online music-on-demand service "unlimited".

According to BT, its 'dotmusic on demand' service, powered by Peter Gabriel's OD2 music outfit, provides "unlimited downloads" and streams 10 free burns for £9.99 a month.

However, Wippit points out that these downloads can't be transferred to other playing machines unless they are purchased. The music also become unusable if the punter ceases to subscribe to the service.

NOT music to everyones' ears! TC.

TS won't actually DO anything about dotmusic's claims.

The trouble is the Office of Fair Trading is a limp-wristed outfit who give the impression they are fully compliant with big organisations such as BT and do not lightly take such organisations to task.

Irritatingly, that means they won't even look into this complaint properly.
