Music Rip off

  amonra 14:57 17 Nov 05

Today's Daily Telegraph :-

Article entitled "EMI wants premium for star downloads" . . . Apple which has 85% of the global market in legal downloads charges
79p for a UK single
79c for a US single
79 euros in europe.
Are we being ripped off, or are we being ripped off ?
Dont give me the old blurb about differing standards etc. It's just screwing the punters for every halfpenny.

I hope you mean 0.79 Euros as opposed to 79 Euros = about £54.00

Seriously the only way to force down prices is comsumer power -- if the price looks like a rip off then don't buy. Pretty soon the manufacturer will be forced to drop the price in line with their other markets

The general public keep getting told that the OFT and the EU are looking into this. One day, we may have a decision!.

if you don't buy the product, can you?

Consumers have a choice - that's what a market economy is all about. If you don't like the look of the price, don't buy the apples.
