    well...you could always burn the songs to cd, then re-rip them if you really wanted. you would likely lose some sound quality that way, but it's a way around it.

    Yeah, and when you decide you dont want any more of their music (or the store goes under, or you just dont want to pay) and you stop paying every month, you dont get to play the music anymore. Great idea.

    i know a 2000 kids that would pay 15 dollars, a month to fill their mp3 players with music

    i think thats a good value, its like only 15 songs from itunes or the napster regular store

    That's a great value, it's a shame Apple doesn't like it :sad2:

    Of course, I don't think it'll be around for long - most people are just going to sign up for a month and download a lot then stop at the end of the month :hs:

    Perhaps you didnt understand what i said:
    When you stop paying the 15/mo, you cant play the music anymore. you dont get to keep it. Thats why its a shitty idea.

    What format is the music in? I'm sure that regardless you can burn it onto a disk, put it on your mp3 player or convert it to another format if you really wanted to :dunno:

    But how exactly do they prevent you from playing the music anymore if it's on your computer? :hs:
