BPI issues new proceedings against CDWow!

October 2005

Record Labels

The BPI is to issue legal proceedings against internet music retailer CD Wow for importing illicitly cut-price CDs and DVDs from south east Asia. The BPI says it has evidence that CD Wow has broken court undertakings not to import such material. The BPI originally reached an out of court settlement with CD Wow in January 2004 after similar allegations. The retailer gave undertakings to both the BPI and the High Court that it would only import music legally. The case covers CDs and DVDs (including a cut-price version of the Live Aid DVD which the BPI feels may potentially have deprived the charity of income).
