I think it is a nice first step, but has too many issues. What's more important, is that people need to (calmly and politely) let places like buymusic.com know WHY we're not spending money there. People will get fed up with the DRM hassle, or not want to upgrade their hardware players, or hate using WMP9 and IE, and simply not spend money on the site. Then the RIAA and the record labels conclude that the world is not ready to buy music online. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Let them know why this business model sucks, and let them know what you would rather have. Don't let buymusic.com's inevitable failure be an excuse for more lawsuits and lack of options. I sent them an email explaining why I was not going to purchase any more music from their site (DRM hassle across 4 computers and doesn't work on my mp3 player), and explained that when I have the option of buying any quality format I choose with no DRM hassle, then I would gladly spend money on it. I encourage others to do the same, with the capslock key OFF, no threats or exclamation points, and no mention of file sharing.
