Default To Buy CDs or Download Music

"Ed is out with another very insightful piece this morning regarding why he also prefers purchasing actual CDs to online music downloads. It's interesting by the way to see CNET News today pick up on Ed's Kazaa post from a few days ago. In his analysis, Ed examines the various online retailers and finds different problems with each of them. Either they won't let you re-download a track once you've purchased it (you can always re-burn from a CD if you buy it), the bit rates are too low, or the costs really aren't that much of a bargain."

I'm a "ripper" myself since I don't think there is a DRM format yet that makes me comfortable to shell out even $0.79 per track. I do buy used whenever I can, but for how much longer. If the RIAA can sue dead people, how much longer until they put my local music store out of business.
