CDNOW Bites the Dust

Dear Valued CDNOW Partner,

In the coming weeks, BeMusic will announce that we have
have reached an agreement for Amazon.com to provide
services for the CDNOW site. As a result of this development,
CDNOW is ending its affiliate programs. CDNOW will remain
a part of BeMusic and continue to operate.

Based on the changes in our business and pursuant to the
terms of paragraph 8(b) of the Cosmic Credit Affiliate
Agreement, CDNOW is terminating your participation in the
Cosmic Credit Affiliate Program effective immediately.

We ask that you please remove any links to CDNOW, and all
all references to the CDNOW name and logo from your website
by December 3, 2002. You will be paid for all activity from
your site through that date. We will contact you in early
December with your final account balance (if any).

If you are currently receiving a data feed from CDNOW that
that contains product-related information, you must remove
any and all of the data from your site by December 3, 2002.

Now that our affiliate program is ending, we encourage you to
join Amazon.com's Associates Program at:
They have a great link-generating tool to make updating your
links and banners fast and easy. Here are three compelling
reasons why we think you should join:

$50 Amazon.com Promotional Certificate for new
Associates from CDNOW - Just sell 10 or more items between
now and December 31, and you'll receive a $50 Promotional
Certificate from Amazon.com as a reward.

Fantastic referral fees - you can earn up to 15%
on individual book links, and during Q4, referral fees range
from 5-8% on retail products.

Huge product selection - not only do they have a huge
huge selection of CD's, DVD's and Videos, but you'll also earn
earn on Books, Electronics, Toys, Software, and more.

To learn more about Amazon.com's Associate Program and
their promotion for joining, please visit:

Thank you for your participation in our program.

And just like that, no more link to CDNOW at the top of the screen.

VERY glad I just got in an order for THE THIRD MAN CRITERION with my $15 Intel GC I hadn't used. Just in time...

How sad I'm really going to miss them. They were awesome on my 2002 dvd pre-orders. Usually (not always) price competitive with Canadian companies but always reliable.

Thanks for the info.
