Online music lovers 'frustrated' (25 Apr 2005)
One confused reader said he had spent £40 in an online store. Although his MP3 player played Windows Media Audio (WMA) files that he created, it would not play the copyright-protected WMA files he had purchased.
Another revealed to the magazine how he had to pay twice to download a song because of an error with the online store.
When he tried to swap the song onto another computer, he found he was restricted from doing so.
PC Pro says people are growing increasingly dissatisfied with restrictions on tracks they have paid for, especially if the price they pay is similar to that which is paid for a physical CD.
