When I visited Digg today I came upon this site, called Allofmp3. From it you can buy songs totally legally for as little as $0.02 per megabyte. They even have this cool service that encodes the files to whatever format you want (I recommend OGG Vorbis at Q6), so you end up paying about $3 for a whole CD (and not old ones or anything, they have almost everything).

What I don’t like about it is the fact that even if it’s legal, it’s not more moral than downloading the songs off P2P(Peer to Peer). Sure, noone can punish you for buying them there, but the artist still don’t see a dime (at least they get something when you buy the songs off iTunes or something). All this money goes into the pockets of the owners of the site and some Russian copyrights group.

The bottom line is that I may buy songs from it when I can’t find them on P2P or when I want good quality, but when I want to support an artist I’ll go to their concerts/buy their CDs (nothing like having a physical CD). Still though, a nifty service.
