From reading a small footnote article on page 11 in the June 2011 issue of CPU magazine, that Amazon didn't consult with the labels about licensing because "uploaded music already belongs to the users" which I fully agree with. The labels just want to try to charge users again and again for the same content. If they could ban blank optical media altogether they would so we would have to buy a new copy every time we wanted to play it somewhere else instead of copying it. These guys need to get a life. We purchased a copy of the master recording which is locked up in a vault somewhere. If i feel like copying or burning it I can as long as I'm not profiting from it IMO.
