There’s been more talk of all-you-can-eat music plans lately. I think I’d pay for something like this only if I could get properly tagged (complete and accurate) files and my choice of unrestricted formats (I want high-quality FLAC). It also better be really convenient. As in, more convenient than torrent sites are now (there’s your benchmark, music companies). If I don’t get those things, what am I paying for?
There’s more to it, though. It would be really tricky to work a plan like this out properly. Who pays? Who gets paid, and how much? Is it fair to everyone? I don’t envy the people who are trying to figure it out.
