Buying MP3's

Postby ferrisld » Wed, 31 Dec 2008 3:57 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone know where one can buy MP3's online in Singapore, if at all? I can't do it through iTunes or amazon.com - I imagine something to do with not having legal niceties or something worked out for music sales in other countries.

I know I could likely download through bittorrent or something similar but I actually don't mind paying for my MP3's. :)

Thanks!

Hiya,

Try this site: http://www.mp3obsession.com

They offer different download sites that are based in Russia so can be used world wide. They are really cheap too - about 9cents a song, so a lot better than itunes prices anyway! :)

Hope this helps you out!

The Russian sites are very questionable, legally. Attempts have been made to shut them down for years without success, mainly because Russian bureaucrats have little respect for IP.

I use Nokia Music, singapore site:

I have doubts about the legality of the russian download sites plus the fact that an awfull lot of virus/spyware seems to come from that area and I don't want to have that running around my systems.
