    Sweet. I've bought a few CD's from amazon over the years which arrived scratched and skipped on certain tracks. I never got round to returning them. Guess I can replace those with these in my Itunes library now.

    Only took them nearly half a year to roll this out in the UK after the US launch.

    Didn't even know they had a player...
    Maybe they don't in Germany

    Seems very odd to me, how do they know you still own the original.
    If you have done as mi1ez did and bought them as a gift or even sold them could you technically be done for copyright infringement ?

    I would say: thanks Jeff; too bad you didn't think of that years ago when I had to purchase replacements for some of my CDs because I misplaced the originals. I never listened to CDs themselves, I ripped them immediately after unboxing them and played the music in MP3 form from the harddrive.

    You make an interesting and very good point.
    Buy on Amazon then sell on ebay = free music

    Nope. The idea behind it is you are given a free extra licence for a digital copy. What you do with the physical media is your choice. It's not a backup; it's another copy.

    Just checked my Amazon account, it's not exactly as described here, lol
    You get 250 songs stored free then you have to subscribe, but they do rip it for free and it does seem that only music brought directly from Amazon is applicable, music from the Amazon market place doesn't seem to be included.

    No, that's 250 songs imported free. You can store every purchase you make with them. That's how my account works.

    I'm not sure if this is clear from the article, but this only applies to CDs sold by Amazon, not by 3rd Parties selling through Amazon. Just thought it was worth saying, as I've bought a couple of CDs through Amazon over the years, but was disappointed that only two qualify for Autorip.

    Oh yes 250 imported songs free, my bad and 5gb of storage.
    250 isn't all that much though really is it and the article kind of implies that it's all free.
    compared to something like Google music it's not all that really.

    Every purchase you make from Amazon is stored there. No limit. You can also import 250 songs free from your own collection.

    The 5GB of storage is Amazon Cloud Drive, a separate thing, and doesn't count towards your Cloud Player storage.

    As many times as you like. You don't even have to download them. I'm listening to my collection at work as we speak, as I do every day, and I haven't downloaded them once. It can stream them for you.

    Well that's useful. 910 songs added to my library from CDs I've bought from Amazon over the years. Very nice!
