    I would hope it wouldn't end like that. If it somehow goes that way over time then I could see them trying to take a cut on anything that the record labels deem playable to music (car stereo, TVs, home stereos and so on).
    Trying to get more from others (the buyer/companies that invent/use such items) that they (record labels) don't make or compete in producing is just like them to be greedy :mad:

    The extra 30¢ a song should make them pretty happy.

    A cut of the sales of iPods? What's next, a cut of the sales of Apple computers since they too store and play the tracks purchased from the iTunes store. :rolleyes:

    From a different article:

    Many people/groups say apple has the upper hand.
