Online music lovers 'frustrated'

BBC: The beeb has an article on how music lovers are generally less than impressed with buying music online. I can sympathise -- when I tried to buy a legitimate copy of "Dance me to the end of love" by Leonard Cohen a few months ago the total time it took amounted to a couple of days. The biggest problem stems from digital rights management. People are upset that there are restrictions not only on how many devices the song can play on but on what type of devices. And of course there's the problem I had -- many online music stores only sell to a particular country. Is there a legitimate reason for this? Well, "Apple's online music store, the most successful of the online services, is currently under investigation by the European Commission for charging UK iTunes customers more than users in France or Germany." It comes down to money, basically. Until the record labels make the music available at a reasonable price (eg, cheaper than CDs) piracy will continue.
