    One more reason to buy mp3s from Amazon, who recently tweeted this on their special offers twitter page:

    @joelkodner Indeed. All music on Amazon MP3 has been DRM-free since day one.

    15 minutes in, these guys sound out of touch. They’re talking about theoretical situations where drm is bypassed, while is reality that is what happens 100% of the time.

    Emusic for me…running much longer than amazon, cheaper and a better selection of alternative musics.

    And DRM free! (Hurray)

    For any artists who might be reading this, I recommend setting up a page on BandCamp ( They let you put songs up for download, for free, for a set price, or for name-your-own-price.

    I think we need more sites like this, because while I have no qualms about giving money directly to the artist for their music, I’d rather not send extra money to apple or amazon or emusic, plus the record labels who take their cut out of that.

    Also, I don’t work for BandCamp, but I’m a fan of several bands who have started using it.

    Why don’t the artists set up paypal accounts so people can pay them directly to ease their conscience when they’re downloading torrents and mp3s? I’m under the impression that in most cases people would rather pay the artist directly.
