I don't normally do this, but after reading this recent article in wired about the subject, I thought I'd post about it.
I stopped pirating music a while ago. Shortly after finding eMusic.
This is the only online music service I would give ANY money to. Why? It's DRM free. This is something that the majors simply don't understand. If you make something convenient enough, people will pay for it. As opposed to as restrictive as possible. A lot of people complain that eMusic doesn't have a great selection. Well, it does. One of the largest on the net (next to iTunes I believe). However, it's mostly independent. This however is GREAT for me. Simply because I listen to mostly electronic music. Electronic music is mostly distributed through independent labels. With their recent addition of Nettwerk records (an excellent Canadian label!), the even have a few major artists like Delirium.
