A new Amazon feature gives users free MP3 downloads of any CD they’ve purchased since 1998.

Discussion:  Amazon recently launched AutoRip, which gives Amazon customers who have purchased CDs on Amazon anytime since 1998 access the the free MP3 versions of that music for free.  The service is now live, and can be accessed from any Cloud Player or other web-based music player.  Another feature of AutoRip is that customers who purchase a new CD from Amazon will receive the digital copy of the music before the actual CD reaches their doorstep, for no extra charge.Source:  CNN News

Discussion Questions:

  • Why would someone want both the CD and MP3 version of the same music?
  • Why is AutoRip a benefit for those who purchase CDs from Amazon?
