      Sorry, not sold

      I have EE too, and did play with Deezer when it first appeared, I found that they did not have a lot of the content I like available, and as you point out, if I want to play it offline I have to pay.

      As IsiTme has already posted, I strongly object to paying again for something I already own, what I do with something I own is up to me. I can only listen to one device at a time.

      Years ago, and I am going back a LONG way, I remember sitting there on Sunday teatime recording the top 40, and pausing the recorder when the DJ was spouting! They were never able to police that, how do they think they can stop people copying between thier own devices? Distribution is a different entity.

      Veering slightly off topic, when I (now) infrequently look at the album charts I often muse that I already have that album, only with a different name and the track order is different!

      How about a new idea for the music industry, stop creating clones and create something original, then I might, just might, go out and buy it.

      My collection sits on a raid server at home. I once got caught by having a drive fail on me, never again. So far I have ripped only about 20% of my CD's. and that has taken years!

      Media streamer runs 24/7 and I can access it wherever, nice high bitrate too, and it's all paid for.

      Like you however, I have a few Gb sat on my laptop, useful when I am stuck in a hotel with shoddy Wifi, as most are in my experience.
