Naxos Records Puts all 5000 CDs Online for Annual Subscription

I've just discovered that Naxos Records has put all 5000 of their CD's online for subscriber listening. That is for $19.95 or E19.95, one can listen to a 20K (they claim FM radio quality) stream of any of their tracks. Naxos Subscriptions

Its great seeing classical CD labels understanding the potential for on-demand music, even if it is without downloading. Of course one could always TotalRecord the stream. But that would be in violation of federal copyright law and no beepSNORT reader would ever do that!
