Where is the Winner?

from the we-all-love-free-stuff dept

A very interesting review of why Napster copycats really aren’t getting it and the title of overall music download site winner is still up for grabs. This article basically covers a lot of points which I believe are very relevant criticisms to these “legal” sites. Aren’t the record companies and these new start-ups listening to net users, they want all you can eat access to music. A subscription model or micropayments are the only type of models that make sense for current users that are hooked on free music downloads; anything else simply won’t be successful.
