  • Napster subscription

    You guys hear about napsters offer to pay the record companies $1B over 5 years? They reckon they are going to make it up through their subscriptions when they shut down their free service. How many of you use napster and would still use it if it was $5 a month?

    I would use AudioGnome, Gnutella, CuteMX, or Freenet. Many options. They can't take it all down

      Napster thinks that 3.3 million people are willing to pay $5 per month for the next 5 years? And that's just to pay off the extortion by the record companies.

            I wouldn't be against paying for Napster if it was the only service. However, since there are a bunch of other ways to get MP3s I don't see the point of paying...

              I forgot to mention that iMesh is still up and running. I have downloaded quite a few movies with iMesh and Gnucleus (a very good Gnutella client).

                  This one lets you choose out of all songs previously avaliable. Then when the song becomes avaliable it downloads the song. Works great with a high speed/LAN connection.

                          I would totally be willing to pay for napster! just that the napster servers contained the music and only had full songs non of that half song crap and was reliable. Bull crap if im paying for a service where your rolling dice on what kinda crap you are downloading. how does everyone else feel about this. If im paying money i want it to be reliable.

                            And I should be able to charge $.01 for each upload! I'm not charging for the song of course, just the network traffic to transfer the song.....
