Re: Streaming wins

Streaming is a win until the someone decides that they don't want to make the music available anymore (or put that particular music in a more expensive streaming model). If I own the CD, then I can still listen to the music even if the rights owner gets a bug up their arse and feels I shouldn't or wants more money for that music.

Streaming is renting and you have no rights to listen to a particular song unless the rights owner allows you. Owning a CD bypasses that garbage. It's worth owning a bunch of plastic discs that I can rip to any format of my choosing.
