Complaint / review text:
Music download titan Yahoo! Ripped off thousands of users who legitimately and legally purchased music via the Musicmatch Juke box portal. Yahoo, purchased Musicmatch for $160 million cash in 2004. Http://docs. Yahoo.com/docs/pr/release1181.html
All of this purchased music was encoded with the DRM Digital Rights Management system suggested by RIAA to help prevent piracy. So all of the purchases had to be authorized by a Musicmatch server to be able to be played this worked out just fine until YAHOO purchased them and turned off the servers. So even though you might have a copy of the music it is copy and play protected so you cant listen to it. Yahoo was apparently aware of this issue because the Musicmatch authorization server was redirected to a yahoo server!
Even today when I try to play the music, the DRM goes to the encoded license Acquisition server though the server is listed as www.musicmatch.com the DNS is redirected to a Yahoo server, I feel I have been defrauded. How is this legal??
