Tom, My kids buy the bulk of what they have on their iPod/iPhone. The material comes from iTunes, artist websites (some legit free), ripped CDs one of us owns, or even my LPs and a few live recordings I've done. This summer we will FLAC the MLP, Living Stereo and London sets so Robert can take them to university. I trust him not to do wholesale sharing, and his dorm room NAS and both laptops are password protected and behind a SPI/NAT firewall, with the university's concurrence. I consider this a parenting victory, and an expense I partially underwrite (I bought the three box sets). We bought the latest ManOwaR digital downolad so Robert could have it the day of release. He found my credit as part of the ManOwaR family which was super generous of Joey.
