    AFAIK, Apple isn't keeping track of what you downloaded. So, if you loose everything you're SoL.
    Maybe if enough people bitch and moan about it, they will allow you to redownload stuff that you've payed for... providing you're doing it from the same IP address as before lets say.

    Well, I guess anyone that has an extensive collection of MP3's to begin with, would be backing their stuff up anyways.

    There's nothing wrong with MP3 singles competing for album sales, that's what 45 rpm records did for years, and many 45's featured exclusive b-sides. The consumer doesn't need to spend $20-$30 on a CD for one song, and I remember buying every 45 RPM single for Bruce Springsteen's Born In The USA and getting my money's worth, and every one of them had an exclusive B-side (like 'Pink Cadillac' and 'Santa Clause Is Coming To Town', for example).

    Well done, Apple!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't these AAC files actually MP4 and not MP3.

    I know it's just semantics, but still...[​IMG]
