Between paying a dollar to download a song that i like vs. obtaining a pirated copy, I will probably pay the dollar and get it over with. If a song does not worth a dollar, it probably is not worth to occupy space in my iphone anyway.
The issue is for Chinese songs, there aren’t many places on the net that sell download-able song for any price legally either DRM-free or DRM-locked.
You would think itune has it. no it doesn’t. How about mp3 download from amazon.com? It is a good attempt but there are so few selections. What i disappointed most about the amazon.com mp3 download service is its poor user interface and no Chinese support. How can one has a good Chinese song buying experience without the ability to search and browse in Chinese? With my poor pinyin, I would not know Gai Shi Ying Xiong from Leehom Wang is 王力宏的蓋世英雄.
Come on amazon, Apple and many other companies out there, you can do better than this. And i have a dollar and want to pay you.
