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..
They are normally 10 pounds. 1.75 is VAT leaving 8.25. Lets say they are bough by the music store for 4 which leaves a difference of 4.25. After that, the store probably sees 1-2 profit after operatin costs, staff wages etc. ~1 of the original 4 would go to the artist and the record lable would probably see 1-2 after operating costs.

I normally buy from amazon but when there is only 1 song I want, instead of buying the album I've used napster simply because its alot easier but now they have 'locked' my downloads!

Alot less than that goes to the artist. Studio's and record labels / distributors are where most of the money from CD sales goes

I usually use the iTunes Store. You only pay 99 cents per song and they work with iPod.

I pay like $2.00 for songs sometime through Verizon VCAST on my cell phone . But that sucks how your songs are gone. I would be writing emails to them, calling customer service if possible to complain. If you didn't spend that much in the first place, I would probably just let it go and never go through them again.
