excellent :D But for those who don't want to cross that line, Amazon is DRM free and has a lot of good stuff.

I know. It's sad that people are still buying DRM'd music from iTunes and the like, even when Amazon comes with all the metadata and integrates with iTunes just fine. When the iPod is dead in five years and Apple shuts off their DRM servers, they'll be in for some fun.

Thanks to the RIAA stupid obsession with control and domination, Amazon can't sell un-DRMed music outside the US, which forces me, as well as a lot of others like me out there, to pirate. Great, isn't it? :)

Buncha crap.

I bought a program for 12 bucks that removes ALL drm from any type of music file and saves it as an unprotected mp3 at any bitrate I want.

Hasn't failed yet.

I got the entire Eric Clapton collection in a single Bit Torrent.... but it's a pain in the ass when no one is sharing.
