one more reason not to buy their product. What if you reside in a country where filesharing is still legal?

There is a few other good quotes, but does not really go into pros and cons. I am getting tired of these discussions, where it all boils down on the big music dinosaurs having slept for too long and now producing all kinds of nonsense with today's digital life.
I prefer DRM free music and no "water marked" music either. As long as no propper solution is worked out, I wont use their download services as much as I would be prepared to do so (as long as prices and copyright issues are not at a level one doesnt feel ripped off or censored in any way). For now, I prefer waiting for the CDs to drop into low prices and buy them then. Dont listen enough music to be prepared to pay 20 bucks for something I dont listen often enough to. I guess it would be a different story if one was like "the" fan of some band. Then one probably would even pay 40 bucks for a CD
