+ - Is it even possible to buy legal mp3s?

Submitted by Visaris

After trying a number of services from rapsody to emusic, I have yet to be able to buy a single mp3 or ogg file. As a Linux user, is it even possible to pay for music online? Are there companies out there that will allow you to pay for and download a mp3 or ogg file by simply using your browser? I don't think pirating has anything to do with money. From my hours online doing my best to buy music, it seems that most people pirate because it is easier than paying; cost is not a factor. If anyone knows of a decent service, please let me know what it is!
