Default Napster the scammers

So I logged in today and all my purchased tracks have disappeared I try to play a downloaded track and a media aquisition license popups up and tells me to buy the track!

I'm trying to do right by paying for the music and now they have deleted all my content!

yep totally agree.. cd's cost no more and 20p to burn.. yet they sell them for up to 20

that would be a 19.80 profit on EVERY CD. now, i know they have to take recording into account, but it is ludacrous..

the music industry is taking the piss, and the sad thing is the artists see diddily squat of that money, its the record companies who get minted..

I used to be a team leader for a CD/DVD manufacturing plant. We could knock out discs for well under 1p in costs
