I won't buy music from the RIAA, but Apple iTunes isn't RIAA. I'd much rather some computer company like Apple having this pay-for-MP3 service than an ISP like AOL. I'd have to wait and see what kind of quality these services offer. I would much rather a lossless format over MP3 or WMA or even OGG or AAC/AC3. It makes more sense to buy a 15-song CD for $13 than to buy 15 songs at 99c/each, meaning $14.85, and only get MP3 quality, far from CD quality, and you don't get the artwork. I think an tiered MP3 service would be better....like $9.99/mo gets you up to 100 songs, after that it would be like 200 songs for $14.99, and like 350 for $19.99 and like $24.99 for any amount, or something. You'd get bumped into the next one to esentailly allow unlimited downloading per month, then you start back at the bottom rung on the next month.
