i don't think they sell things that i'm interested in buying in the music section of walmart. how much non-riaa would you expect to find there? (i'm genuinely curious about that).

i think $17 for a cd is more typical for me.

Something in THIS century.

I would guess none at all. They're only goiing to work with really big
distributors, which means major label-only artists.

And they're going to censor the CDs they DO have.

You can also buy used CD's, which around here you can get for $10 to $12 Cdn, and sometimes for $6.

At that point the purchase has nothing to do with RIAA either way, though,
as they've already been paid.

iTunes usually charges $9.99 for a "CD" even if there are more than 10 songs on it. So the average per track does go down.

What I use iTunes for is to get songs where I wouldn't buy the whole CD. I still buy my CD's in plastic/aluminum format when I want the whole thing, or most of it. But $.99 for one track is better than $15 for 1 you like and 9 you don't.

I like to buy Kruger Bros. CD's direct from the artists. They have a web site, and they just live 50 miles away.

I'm lost.
I still download hundreds of songs at a time and spend a few weeks listening to them and keeping the ones I want.
I'd be willing to pay 99 cents for those, but who's going to let me do that?

iTunes will let you listen to a 30 second song sample, which for me is usually enough to let me know whether I actually want to buy the song or not.

Ford, so you want to freely download the music, and pay only for the ones you like...  hmm.. I don't think that would work out on a business model thanks to the masses of people who would not play fair.  30 sec. samples could be worked out.

I actually heard 100.3 in Chicago announcing their next three songs in advance last weekend (80's/90's format)

Ultimately it's the sellers problem to provide a product the buyer wants to buy. As buyers we can ask for whatever we want, it doesn't have to be "fair".
This is the basis of our alledged economic system.. if you are selling something rare and important, then as a seller you have a much easier job. If you are selling something like pop music, which is neither rare nor important.. then if you insist that 30 second samples are the best you can do, and the buyers won't buy from 30 second samples, then you've got a problem.

BMI, ASCAP, etc.. have deemed that the playing of 30sec or more of any copyright material must be paid for. So these sample clips are typically 29 sec in length in order to avoid having to pay for samples. It's a fine walking of the line...

Hm, does that mean we can get webcasts from outer space?

IO..  to answer your question seriously.. yes..  When ever the shuttle is in space they do have webcasts that are sometimes publicly viewable. :)

Well, gee, we're already not playing fair, I'm offering them some free money compared to what I do now...

Do they have a duty free shop on the international space station?
