Many of her fans will mourn Whitney’s untimely death by enjoying her music. But, to do so, SONY has raised prices on her existing albums. I think the back story here involves someone taking initiative as a business opportunity followed by a quick retraction by their boss. Fear of consumer backlash may also have trumped any moral re-assessment to get a few extra dollars. Perhaps, SONY will donate those funds to a charity in her name as a good will gesture….hint, hint.
