A world of free music

I am not someone who listens to a lot of music, but when I do I like to be able to choose what I am listening to. Digital downloads are fine, but Digital Rights Management is a real pain making music I’ve paid for difficult to move around. The public response has unsurprisingly been lots of illegal music sharing and the recording industry launching lawsuits left right and centre against hosting sites. Recently YouTube UK has got into a battle with the Performing Right Society.
But the world is changing and new services are coming out which make the music I want to hear freely and legally available whichever machine I’m logged on to. Spotify has only been around for a few weeks but it’s amazing. It is paid for by a few seconds of ads every 15 minutes and makes millions of popular and classic tracks available on demand.
