[thelist] You can play a song but you can't download it

Use flash to play the music. Compile it, and put in on your site. Wont be
rippable :)
Create a music control for stopping and starting the music.

Kind Regards,

FYI --

With the right software... if I can hear it, I can save it as an 
MP3/AIFF/etc.  Said software is also easy to come by.

I would concur with the poster who suggested that obscurity is a far 
greater danger to a band than piracy.  I like a lot of bands of whom I 
never would have heard had a friend not emailed me an MP3 with a "hey 
check this out" message.  (And I almost always download the weekly 
freebies from iTunes!)
