HMV

"Music and DVD retailer HMV said it was calling in the administrators after a last-ditch attempt to secure funding failed, bringing the curtain down on one of Britain's best-known high street retail stores.

The accounting firm Deloitte has been named as the administrator and intends to keep the business running while it seeks a potential buyer, HMV said in a statement late on Monday." [Reuters]

That place justified pirating music with there ridiculous prices and terrible selection. This should have went way before virgin stores.

It appears BV has mistakenly re-posted one of their stories from 2005.
