RIP Whitney Houston, Long Live Capitalism

Posted by on Mon, Feb 13, 2012 at 11:26 AM

Nice one Sony...Houston's catalog, within hours of her death, just got a leetle more expensive.

...Sony Music increased the price of "The Ultimate Collection" at about 4 a.m. Sunday, not even 12 hours after news broke of Houston's death. Fans were quick to point fingers at Apple for the anti-sale, but it turned out that when Sony bumped up the wholesale price of "The Ultimate Collection," iTunes and other retailers automatically upped their pricing.

Read all about it right HERE! Gross, Sony...just gross.

Sony may have raised prices, but that doesn't mean retailers can't drop prices. Apple can deflect the blame, but they are still making extra money on their 50% of sales.
