Apple buys then kills LaLa

Four months after buying Lala Media's popular online music service for a reported $80 million, Apple is pulling the plug on the site, which had been operating for five years.
Lala notifed its users in an e-mail Friday morning of the shutdown  ....

Step 1/
Buy the cd’s rip music to media server as mp3’s – put the cd’s in a box and store away.

Step 2/
Listen to your music on any device, anytime, anywhere.

Step 3/
Knowing that no matter what no one can pull your license or kill your right to listen – Priceless.

I wonder if people realise their rights to the music they purchased on iTunes is just as tenuous?
