    I'm at buy . com and I'm looking for a site that has more songs. I have been listening to BBC Radio One and I can't find "those" songs at buy . com
    Is there a UK site?
    Thanks for any help.

    itunes was recently launched in the UK so they probably have added a large library of British music and might include what you are looking for.

    I've been using iTunes Store since Christmastime and have been totally pleased with it. Super easy.

    Probably licensing considerations being worked out still, but yeah, I've logged in from Canada and it has an "only available to people with US CC billing addresses" window that comes up.

    Napster seems to have a large number of tracks. Anyone know if it's good?

    I apologize. I overlooked the fact that you lived in Canada. Even Napster will not work for you. Most legal music download software will have the following condition.

    "Currently, the Service is only available to residents of the United States. You understand and acknowledge that you may not sign up for, access, or attempt to access or use the Service from countries outside of the U.S. You agree to abide by U.S. and other applicable export control laws and further, not to upload to the Service any data or software that cannot be exported."

    The terms and conditions for music distribution by record labels and the Canadian authorities has not been worked out yet.

    Thanks for the heads up! It could have sucked!
