P2P File-Sharing Could Outsell iTunes?

By Derek Sooman on July 22, 2004, 12:20 PM
"In a bid to persuade the music industry that P2P networks can encourage legal file-sharing, P2P companies today claimed that more people have bought tracks from Heart's new album, 'Jupiter's Darling', via the likes of Grokster, Morpheus and Kazaa than through Apple's iTunes Music Store."

What I personally would really love would be if you could pay an "internet tax" and then download, via P2P or whatever, anything you liked. I would even be willing to pay what is the eqivalent of one album in $$$ every month for this, on top of my broadband fees. Perhaps more. P2P is the technology that can bring the consumer media delivery that is worth paying for.
