Thanks, but I'll use those pesky fair use rights that the recording industry hates so much to make my own mix CDs.

It's a goodish idea for those people who want a hand picked best-of album, and don't want to steal/rip it off kazaa etc. Especially in the context of older bands. I'd like to be able to choose from more than one Artist per CD though.

Plus, $15.00 seems a bit excessive. I'd like to see what you get with your CD. Anyone ordered one of these? If so, what are they like.

At least they knew better than pushing a mix of both Dylan and Train songs, I guess.

Why the heck would this be limited to "continental US"? They're discriminating against Alaska and Hawaii!

Why exactly isn't Alaska considered 'continental US' anyway? Last time I checked it was rather firmly attached to North American continent.

No, I didn't have anything relevant to add to the discussion.

Lets see, I can exchane money for Sony goods, and Sony will then take that money and buy congress-critters who pass the DMCA and similar laws.

So far, I've seen nothing from Sony that I'd give them my money so they can beat me over the head with later.

As long as VCR's are 'the Boston Strangler', skipping adds is theft, and the DMCA exists, I see no reason to hand the bastards *MY* money, and I can live without their products, thank you very much.
