I know you can't buy music from iTunes and play them on a Squeezebox, but are there any other options out there?

I'm basically looking for an online music service where I can buy songs and play them on Slimserver/Squeezebox.

thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for.

I guess it's a shame that the music industry can't figure out a way to profit on open formats. But until they do, fuck 'em. I see no reason not to take advantage of loopholes in Russia's copyright laws.

NWP,

I agree - I use allofmp3.com because I want to buy music in a format that works for me.

Mostly I buy CDs unless it is only one track that I am after

going offtopic..
does a company that add such a monumental disclaimer to corporate email
not also have a policy against using said email for lists/personal use?

curious, because my own company that merely forces an annoying 2-line
HTML sig very clearly bans the use of the company email address for
personal use (bandwidth, thankfully, is discretionary subject to crazy
firewall)

If you do have a choice, might it be possible to turn off the huge
disclaimer for posting here?

probably, unless they are endorsing a site that makes use of weak Russian copyright laws to sell inexpensive music .

KDF,

Off-topice

The mad company allows "reasonable" personal use of e-mail.
I have pointed out that a simple 2/3 line disclaimer that points to a version controlled full HTML version would save masses of space but apparaently it does not matter.....

The company I work for is a British financial brokerage and they tend to be a bit paranoid and disclaimers etc

not far off what I expected. Just that if it is a "choice" as far as
the disclaimer...well, to my mind every disclaimer can be put down to :
"if this if for you, good, of not kindly fuck off"

But I'm sure the list would get a great number of threads on whether it
is better to have 30 lines of something no one can understand vs one
line of 4-letter words :)

notice that there is no "IT" in "simple"
