Sony Music, barely twelve hours after the news of Whitney Houston's death, saw fit to jack up the prices on her online music. Walmart too, who sells her CDs, is suddenly "out of stock;" I suppose they need time to afix new, higher price tags on the discs.<br><br>
This is NBC's story: <a href="http://technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/13/10394035-sony-hikes-whitney-houston-album-prices-online?chromedomain=digitallife" target="_blank">http://technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news...in=digitallife</a><br><br>
I never bought any of her music, but I have an old VHS tape of The Bodyguard, which I watched yesterday. At any rate, the girl could sing.

Well I'm glad they can financially benefit from her death.

You make that sound like a bad thing.

For the record, Sony has issued an apology for the price hikes and says it is working to "fix" it. I've heard no mention of plans to refund any of the fortune they raked in in the past few days, however.<br><br>
Several of Houston's songs are likely to be in the Top-40 again soon, and <i>I will Always Love You,</i> written by Dolly Parton, should be in the Top-10 by Sunday. Parton and the publisher are far more likely to profit from the sales royalties than is the Houston estate.<br><br><a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-17039076" target="_blank">http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-17039076</a>
