    I would find out the RL names of the decision makers and not buy or use a service from them ever again.

    The music industry seems to be completely blinded by their own greed, personally I've stopped listening to music altogether.

    Another reason not to ever buy DRMed music, but at least they hadn't paid for the useless bits that are now filling up their hardrives, with anything but their time.

    yet another example of why the DRM business model is completely and utterly flawed

    You could argue one of the reason's it's folded is people not buying enough from them and downloading for free. Either way as said it's still a flawed business model...

    Personally i now listen to the radio online....
    Absolute radio and .977 all via shoutcast and Winamp.....

    AT least i'm not always listening to the same old tunes over and over, and .977 has a lot of different channels with virtually no adverts...

    Last.FM is quite good in my opinion. But still DRM'd stuff just doesn't work anymore? What if that happens to Napster? All you paid for is unusable at some point? ****in' hell, you paid for it! If I buy a CD it doesn't evaporate after 2 years, does it?
    After all these people paid for their music by watching/clicking/whatever ads. Seems a bit like theft to me. ;)
