    It seems the Record companies will never learn that the more you try to lock people in, and the harder it is to maintain a legal version you have paid for, the more people will go to pirated DRM free copies.

    I hope they wise up someday, because I would hate to see recorded media dry up due to lack of purchases.

    maybe it is, IDK cause I just subscribe to napster, which only works on the web. Any other time, I just listen to radio.

    it is. it is like the journey of the ring brotherhood to mordor. there are artists you can get drm free, there are those songs of them you can or cannot get drm free, and the quality of the ones you can get drm free changes. its basically like a text adventure played on the internet. totally forgetting the 'zone availability'.

    i blame this all to the 'marketing' departments of corporations. they are creating a situation like a puzzle while trying to get the max cash out of the customers.
