I agree with you there, actually. That argument can be taken too far, and there needs to be an element of common sense in the decisions that are made. The only thing I'd preach about the whole situation is exactly that; common sense. I'd rather see people acting rationally about all of this, than jumping to sensationalist conclusions about something which we don't even know all the details of yet. Agreed again, I didn't think of that issue, but Apple should really have told its (potential) customers that it was doing this. I don't use iTunes myself, either, I still buy CDs since my favoured music isn't usually available on iTunes, but my hope is that it will eventually incorporate more labels and genres and more of the obscure music out there, or that serious competitors to iTunes will form, along with smaller 'specialty' stores of a similar nature.
