    Thank you! twas interesting! I don't download free music (not yet...) ;)but I agreed with the guy who wrote that article when he was speaking of peer2peer users:

    they don't like paying $20 for a CD that only contains one song they enjoy. The industry would be better off if it tried to serve that need instead of crushing it.


    I've got many cds here and many of them contain just one enjoyable song per disc. Not only it's a loss of money but it's a loss of time too. But I heard through the grapevines about places where you can download music for 1$...I don't know if they have a wide choice though.

    Bye, Uguel

    Does anyone know the status of audiostreams? I rather like the 24 hours/day shoutcast of Pink Floyd over on grapeshot.net. :D I've previously purchased every album of Pink Floyd up until Waters left so I don't feel too uncomfortable with the ethics of it :)

    Aside from that, I stick to downloading only older Jazz songs that are no longer copyrighted like old Thelonius Monk tunes [I especially LOVE the song "Crepescule with Nellie" there are tons of different renditions! :D]

    TIA
