Give Clemmensen a HUGE round of applause. He deserves a big pat on the back. He did not give in entirely to Fox's demands, although he did removed the audio clips.
But what you said is true, mp3's are driving these companies nuts becuase of the good quality considering if you take the file size into consideration. But for goodness sake, this is Real Audio and the clips are barely 30 seconds. Which farking idiot in this world would want to burn his own compilation of CDs with these clips or make mp3s and transfer it into their protable mp3 player? Who is going to listen to a part of a few tracks in a soundtrack with the crap quality this site got to offer? Had it been in 128kbps quality, its I will understand. FOX action's this time are real dumb
