    I want to see how the big three blame this move on piracy.
  3. This is a horrible move for Emusic and will very likely result in the cancellation of an account I've held with them for over 10 years. Thank goodness that I took the opportunity to download all of my favorite "mainstream" music while I had the chance. What's wrong with mainstream music anyway? Sure, some independent music is OK, but most of it doesn't interest me at all. I expect we'll see a reversal of this bad move within a year or else Emusic will fade into obscurity.
