The music industry is a cartel anyway. And they're dealing monopoly-goods.
In practice, the consumer doesn't have much choise as to which download-service he wants to use. For certain things (i.e. those that are iTMS exclusive) he has no choice at all.
Besides, which legal download-service *should* I choose if I want to download music and play it on, for example, the Slimp3 ? As far as I'm aware there are none, and the labels would infact not allow a online-music-shop that sells unencumbered files to peddle "their" artists.
Yeah, I know about the Russian thing, but the RIAA claim that's illegal too.
