Yes, likely, so I've written to each of the relevant copyright holders separately since 2004, when I started this particular service, and described the plan and the site and included a direct reference. So far, I haven't received any negative word from them. If I do however, well that will likely be the end of it. I'll cross that bridge when I get there... ----- Original Message ----- From: <james.homme@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

There could be a copyright issue with this.

Hi Andy - Why would you want to do this? From a usability point of view, it
isn't always pleasant to have to sit in front of a computer to listen to
files; I would much prefer to listen to them on another device. Indeed, I
find that I almost never make use of streams that cannot be downloaded, so
it is likely to repel some of your visitors. Of course, it depends on the
actual content: for instance, books must never be streamed (what if you
wanted to stop halfway and then resume a few days later?), whereas music
seems more workable this way, as does live content. -Graham.

I have to stream mp3 files from an 2.0 website. I am trying to
figure out how you can let any visiter to the site play them but not
download them. Most of the examples out there show how in flash, but is
there another way?
