    Well, there are 8 countries existing in the world that could afford to pay it with one year or less of their GDP, and the EU block could manage it in under 6 weeks if it decided to magically turn GDP into petty cash.

    We are talking a ridiculous sum of money though, they're charging 250,000 USD per song if I remember rightly. No way in hell they'll ever get it - I guess they're going for publicity though since they want AOMP3 shut down, and no figure would help get that more than a "so-big-it's-funny" one.

    You would think there would be a better way to handle this. If artists are due money then why not just work on a solution to that. If the Russians start to take this personal, then the RIAA might read up a bit on Russian history, the great Napoleon could not defeat them, niether could the mighty German army. The Russians are sitting on large oil and gas reserves, any threat to these or any prospect of price hikes may make cheap music seem less of an issue after all !

    Well since Xrost is the only way to pay for many people with major credit cards, it's use them or don't. They're safe though. Gotta put the credit into alltunes as well. It all seems a little convoluted but once you know how to do it it's easy.

    Agrees with spec, Xrost works fine. I've yet to hear of anyone having trouble with them, and it would be all over the web (courtesy of the RIAA) if it wern't totally aboveboard.
