Pah. The only reason why bought online music hasn’t / might not take off will be because of excessive pricing, small library sizes and / or lack of choice of download bitrate. Lay on cheap [£.30/$.5] tracks with enormous [rather than the currently pretty feeble] availability at any bitrate on a fast server and it’d take of in minutes.

“The creatively named report, Music on the Internet (4th Edition)” I like this sarcasm here. CD Freaks should use more of it. :slight_smile:

Apart from the creative title (of the report) methinks they are a bit creative with their figures…why do companies pay clowns like this big bucks when a uni student standing on a street corner asking questions could come up with the same results…:X
