    Hi hk2npck,
    Try www.allofmp3.com it's a russian site with a great catalogue,But sometimes it takes a while for them to get the newer stuff,You just pay whatever you want by paypal,I paid £5 a long time ago,You are charged something like 1 cent per mb which is nothing really.
    Maybe worth a look.

    DaOsT,

    That's interesting since I think the RIAA charges a non-negotiable royalty fee that's over 80 cents. I'd be interested to find out more about that service.

    I can't find it now, but I remember reading an article about a month or 2 (maybe more?) after iTunes started up about the RIAA charging something like 89 cents per song. The article basically said that Apple was more or less figuring to break even on the service and clean up selling iPods. Smart business on Apple's part but more of the same from the RIAA.

    I thought the article was here on Afterdawn, but I can't find it so I could be mistaken. There also may have been changes since then. Besides, you mentioned that it might be Sony, which actually makes some sense. The Japanese have a tendency to be willing to operate a business at a loss in order to dominate a market. Sony in particular has quite a history of this with consumer electronics in the 70's and 80's. It's really a question of long term outlook vs. the quick shareholder payoff that is so prevalent in the US.

    Well that makes sense. Especially considering that part of any RIAA royalty payments are going back into Sony's pocket anyway.
