iTunes price hike

Post by roberdjp » Fri May 07, 2004 1:35 pm

This might be a little more on-topic than it's supposed to be for this forum, BUT.....


Anybody else see that the major record labels have colluded to force Apple to raise some of iTunes prices? Singles up to $1.25 and albums up to $16.99.

$16.99.

Do they not realize this is what got them in this situation in the first place?

Interestingly, Sony who, along with EMI, was the main instigator of the price change, recently launched THEIR OWN music site where everything is $0.99....

Is anybody else furious about this?
