        I'm like Sellam here. I have bought quite a few CDs, based on hearing a
song or two from the album via Napster.
        Granted, I'm one of those people who look for that album in the used
rack first, before resorting to a buying new copy. It is a form of
recycling; but I wonder what exactly do the record labels think of me
for that?
        I also believe that new audio CDs are still overpriced. Doesn't stop me
from buying one, though, if I can't find a used copy.
