    Yup they have cancelled the surcharge but increased the price of some of their CD's. example, Dido yesterday was 6.99 now its 8.99. Still not a big deal as some are the same. Good move i think from CD WOW :)

    I think it might be something to do with the lack of CD orders they have taken since implementing the surcharge and have worked out that they will make more by removing the surcharge, and cutting the profit per CD. So although they may have found a cheaper source, they are probablytaking less of a cut off each CD sold.

    PLUS Look how much publicity they have gained from this! The BPI are at least good for something then :D
