Poll! How do you purchase music online?

I'm curious as to how people purchase music online. Right now I have my new album available at BandCamp, but I'm thinking of adding it to iTunes, Amazon, etc. too. Help me out!

Poll #1492581 Buying music online

Do you pay for downloaded music?

Yes, always
2(11.8%)
Yes, sometimes
14(82.4%)
I only download free music
1(5.9%)
I don't download music
0(0.0%)

What paid sites do you use, if any?

iTunes
5(35.7%)
eMusic
0(0.0%)
Amazon MP3
2(14.3%)
Rhapsody
0(0.0%)
Other
1(7.1%)

Would you prefer to download music directly from an artist at a site such as BandCamp, or an artist's personal site?

Yes
12(75.0%)
No
4(25.0%)

Is there a barrier (real or psychological) that makes a retail outlet (iTunes, etc) preferrable to an artist's own site? If so, what is it?


By the way, all of my CDs and vinyl are $1-off for the rest of today (if you buy direct, ha!). Happy Cyber Monday!
