AllofMP3 loses Visa, gives music away for free

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 12:00 pm

The AllofMP3.com soap opera takes another bizarre twist today with news that the site plans on giving its music away for free and supporting itself through advertising—just as Visa announces its intention to stop processing AllofMP3 payments.

The ad-supported model is exactly the sort of intriguing new initiative that one might announce in one’s first-ever press conference, but AllofMP3 said nothing about it. Odd—but the company is still new at this, finally deciding to mount a public defense of its activities after years of attacks from the IFPI and (more recently) the US Trade Representative.
