What happens when Apple Computer loses any court
battle with Apple Records and is forced to either get out
of the music business or give its music technology to
Apple Records?

I love Apple, but I hate their music distribution ideas
and anything having to do with proprietary formats.

Go FLAC, you'll never go back. Another good thing
is that if you go with flac, the decode is happening
on the sb2. With apple lossless, the decode is
happening on the server.

lossless means nothing is lost. Therefore Apple lossless would sound
the same as FLAC lossless.
