the courts have to wise up and say "stop wasting our time, you're going to lose."
Okay. I bought a CD of a local artist.
Song 8 got scratched and won't play.
if you're saying that buying the CD is buying a license, then they should be willing to replace my CD for the price of the physical CD (~$1.00)
Since they won't do that, you're obviously paying for the CD and not the license.
Can't have it both ways!
til that occurred to me, I wasn't so bugged by paying for CDs but now I'm extra-ticked.
license or disc. choose.
meantime, I'll have to borrow the cd from my brother-in-law and see if I can rip it...
anyone recommend a good win-compatible cd -> mp3 converter program?
plan to fix that.
There's a setting in prefs->converter to change it to MP3.
my cybiko maxes out at 64megs of memory, so I can only play about 10-15 songs at a decent bitrate, but being that this is for my car with lots of wind and engine noise, I'm not as concerned about quality, so if I reencode at 64K or 96K I can fit more songs one it.
Is there a really simple to setup program that will batch decompress and recompress at a different bitrate for mp3's?
File-sharing suffers major defeat
The Supreme Court voted in favor of the music and movie industry on this issue. I will be very curious about the details, as this just seems very odd.
