I went and registered with iTunes a couple of years ago and didn't like what I saw, particularly their proprietary format that meant even if I paid for music I could only play it back on their software.
When I thought about slsk.net I was put off by their terms and conditions, but despite cancelling before I registered they still sold my email address and I satrted getting spam *the next day*
In the end I still spend a lot of money on CDs because I haven't found an online system that meets my quality needs. The main issue is the proliferation of formats. If Songbird can help to fix this I'll be happy, and I think many others will be too (that Linux port better come soon though).
