Too late. I've already started buying Music CD's once again. The artists I support are the ones that I like their kind of music.

I like having a combination of both MP3s & CDs. I like to try some of the music on a CD in MP3 format, and if I'm sure I'll love the rest of the CD, I'll buy the CD & rip it to MP3 format. Ripping's a lot quicker for me because I'm on dialup. Even if I had broadband, I'd still buy the CDs because the quality on the high-end stereo systems is just better than MP3 burned CDs. They're supposed to be very close, but comparing 128 bit MP3 to CDs on my stereo just sounds so different at high volumes.

So I like both. RIAA needs to MTOFB

I'm a DJ. You can DL my mixes free from my website: www.djcmount.com

You have the right to refrain from posting unless you write in the "rap battles" thread. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court by mods.

Rip to ogg (q 7 sounds pretty good to me) or 256 vbr for mp3 and i doubt you'd be able to tell the difference.

I'm afraid that the majority of people who will involve themselves in this initiative don't have many pieces left to give.

For the freedom to express myself in my own way without fear of being censored or banned.

I only buy CD's if I can't rip them. (Example: WWE Anthology, I can't download three CD's with this 56k!)

I'd send them a comment, but it seems like they're looking for in-depth input, and I'm too tired to write such a thing right now.
