... I'm sympathetic to these ideas. And then I remember Napster. As a music lover, I LIKE youtube and other free ways of getting exposure to new music. But I think I things were better when the music industry made money. After all, most of the IT guys who contribute to open-source projects have day jobs writing proprietary (or privately owned) code. Also, I'm a writer, and I like to get paid for what I write. When people steal it, I get pissed.

who's saying anything about stealing music?

sure Napster that was the wild west days of the internet, basically a free for all with copyright theft. If you wrap FLAC into Ogg Vorbis you can have DRM at the server level.

I don't understand why this is hard?

I record music myself, that is another problem, everyone with a $100 sound card is now a musician, the music industry was destroyed by that fact that anyone with a computer can make music. However horrible it is. I'll put a link below to my latest recording.

Real hackers are on the dark web ordering cocaine and hitmen using Tor with bitcoin. Seriously.

Windows 7 does not support FLAC. Can you point me to a website where it can be added?

"However horrible it is." This is an honest and accurate take.
