    Why doesn't D&B pay its bills any more?

    Please refer to this case law before you spew more profanities: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=US&vol=472&invol=749

    • since when is 'crap' a profanity. and the fact that you guys have to go back 25 years to find something to discuss...i rest my point. that case is from the good old "IR days" you refer to so which is it...we were better then but that's the last time we had this type of issue (bound to happen with 100 million records...still beats the pants off what you guys do with your lack of linkage and multiple duplicates counting as 'unique records' I'll take you on head to head any day...

      • Your problem is that you have no choice but to go "head to head" everyday, with nothing to gain and everything to lose, while as you admit, the product quality diminishes.

        I don't work for them, but Equifax is gaining traction, particularly with the financial sector, which at one point was solely D&B turf. If you were to dip your toe in the water, beachfront property in the financial sector is a nice place to start.

        Nobody's on the credit scale of D&B, but like we saw with the marketing business, niche players are beginning to move in.

        It puts a lot of pressure on pricing power, which is crucial when you are in a mature industry.

        All that said, linkage is a great product that does save a lot of D&B bacon.

        BTW, how much do you think the "class action" pension lawsuit will cost D&B?
