Take a look at this: MP3DownloadHQ - Your MP3 HeadQuarters. I found this site through a banner ad on a blog*spot blog - the text of the ad said merely, "Napster alternative." The site promises unlimited free downloads of music, movies, and software for just $0.97. You know how they do this? Well. take a look at the FAQ page, right down at the bottom: thier service offers a variety of downloading solutions: BearShare, Morpheus, KazaaLite, and so on, that they "give" you access to. What? They're all free to begin with!!! They offer tech support, but if you actually look into it, it's email tech support only, and the programs for which they offer support either have their own email or forum support. So, unless I missed out on something, it appears that they're ripping users off for a buck (or $1.50 if you only agree to a one-year subscription) a month. *sigh* n00bs, beware.
