Default Kazaa

Hey guys! So I just ordered this device and I was wondering if it is compatible with Kazaa? I know that it doesn't work with Napster and I've heard that it doesn't work with Rhapsody.

If the tracks from Kazaa are DRM loaded, then I have some doubts, but the only way to know for sure is to try it. When did Kazaa go legal?

DRM=BAD

July 2006. I know, it surprised me too. I had to actually look that up for another thread here on ABi.

Anyway, according to Kazaa's website, their music is playable on up to three Windows PC's only. Portable music devices are specifically not supported.

*shakes her head*

And they wonder why music piracy flourishes.

It doesn't, actually. All this does is just encourage the record companies to use even more draconian DRM schemes, which just hurts everyone even more. There are plenty of online music stores that have finally seen the light and offer DRM-free, variable-bitrate MP3 files now, so there is really no "legitimate" reason to pirate music.

Hmm.. Okay. What I'm looking for is a program (I'm not sure if you would call it that) like napster or rhapsody that i can download music from for a monthly rate. The internet that I just recently got doesn't allow the use of any sort of P2P programs... so, i suppose i gotta keep it legal! lol.

No, there are no such services. Any service which allows an unlimited number of downloads for a flat monthly fee is a subscription service, and the songs are only playable for as long as the subscription is active (some services allow a short grace period before deactivating your songs). However, if the service requires you to pay per song (or a fixed fee for a fixed number of downloads, generally around US$1 per download), then the songs are yours to keep forever (or, in the case of DRM'd songs, until the DRM authenticating server is permanently taken offline - one of the reasons why DRM is evil and strips consumers of their rights).
