After reading This I decided to stick with iTunes. Reading the story I saw that the songs are the same price ($.99) but you have to pay a monthly fee on top of that. I know iTunes is not the first but they where the first big one. With support of the RIAA (A very jittery RIAA) So I'll let every one else disect this and read your thoughts but as of now I have no reson to change.

There's nothing wrong with me, This is how I'm supposed to be.

The Virgin Digital Music Club subscription service, for $7.99 per month, gives users unlimited access to more than 100,000 on-demand albums.
I interpret that to mean that the music you get via the subscription service will be shrouded in layers of streaming, Digital Rights Mangling, and other "technologies" to attempt to prevent you from saving it to disk. (And oh yeah -- we have that little DMCA thing here in the USA which makes breaking the "protection" a crime, even if it's just rot13.)

But anyway... it's not "99 cents per song plus 7.99 per month". It's "99 cents per song or 7.99 per month".
