napster has been using false advertisement i beleive to get people to use there software and service.
napster has been running adds for a free 14 day trial, but upon trying to instail there software, napster REQUIRES YOUR BILLING INFORMATION which is NOT MENTIONED IN THERE ADVERTISMENTS, as for why your billing information is required, here is the explanation:
Why do I need to enter my billing information?
If you are currently a subscriber or using a trial, securing your account with payment information allows you to continue Napster without interruption when your current subscription or trial is over. Cancel anytime before your trial is over and your credit card will not be charged.
Providing your payment information allows us to give you full access to all of the features of Napster not included in Napster Light. Click here for a full list of Napster’s features.
did you read that correctly? it says at the top, if your are using a trial, IE FREE TRIAL< then you must provide your credit card number so you can be charged for the service when the trial ends, which means the 14 day free trial is not 14 days long, because you have to cancle before the 14 days are over in order for it to be free, but there advertisments which say 14 day free trial does not tell you this, but advertises the full 14 days as being free, which is false advertisement because in order for it to be free, you must cancle it before the 14 days are over.
then the second paragraph is more false statements proving, it states the billing information will also be used to gain access to all napster features, which means that you must purchas additional features, which are not free, in order to use the free trial, thus making it not free, there for a second false advertisement in the 14 day free trial.
so why is it that music companies sue and bitch about laws that affect them negativly being broken is ok, but then turn around and say that the laws, such as the no false advertisment laws and federal anti racketering laws they violate, or ok to do so because they benefit from it?
where are the reglastory agencies that are suppose to monitering the companies at?
