I know that there has been lots of debate as to the legality of the site mentioned – but should credit card companies be able to do this? It could be the narrow edge of a very thick wedge if they are going to start taking a ‘moral’ stance on what we spend our money on.
I'd tend to be opposed to this action on the grounds that I don't think “Big Buisness” are the correct people to ‘Police’ the web.
Also I don’t think it’ll achieve their desired end – paypal etc will no doubt quickly become an option for payment
Well if this quote is correct "But US officials say AllofMP3 operates outside international agreements and no artists have been given royalties." especially the last part, then I agree 100% with th C/C companies
I think one point that credit card holders ignore, is in the original transaction, it is not 'our' money, but that of the credit card company, and as such they have the right to apply their own terms and conditions.
Making a decision as seems to appear here, is basically covering their own back and possibly that of their customers.Litigations and long drawn out court cases, especially on an international scale, can be very time consuming as well as very expensive.All of which will eventually end up with the customer, rightly or wrongly, footing the bill.
