RipIt! Don't rip it off!

No... it's not encouraging anyone to rip music but purchase it from the site. And of course the music you buy from RipIt will be DRMed, and the format they support are WMV and WMA only. So Ipod users will have to burn it and rip it... (hmmm isn't that catch-22?) Of course, there are other requirement, IE6 browser and Windows Media Player 9+. I saw this at Dick Smith Electronic today... I wonder how well it is, or how big is its library.

I saw it last week, It looks quite dumb as most of them, only this one is very quiet about the fact you need super-microsoft DRM stuff to play and it'll only work in WinME and on some players, It's only a "site design" licence of a much larger service, possibly like coketunes.

There is a mention your "player needs to play wma" and no mention of  "playsforsure" or DRM, just wma support.......... of course it won't work in my 2 cd-mp3 players of any of the piles of ultra-cheap mp3/wma players which will be filling stockings this christmas.

Hey Everyone!

I purchased a ripit voucher today and its not really that good, you can only play it on the computer.  You can not rip the media or anything, I have tried doing it but it wont let me.  Which in my eyes is stupid, I don't know about you guys but yeah I think it is stupid!.
