So I was looking at getting a CD from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004IWQAIM/ref=dm_dp_cdp?ie=UTF8&s=music

And noticed this:

CD-R Note: This product is manufactured on demand when ordered from Amazon.com.

CD-Rs and DVD-Rs (the "R" stands for "recordable") look like the discs you're used to and offer the same audio and image quality. This recordable media is used to manufacture titles on demand, as fully authorized by the content provider.

Through manufacturing on demand, CreateSpace, part of the Amazon.com group of companies, enables Amazon.com to offer music and video content that might not otherwise be available. Each disc comes fully packaged, with artwork, in a standard jewel case for audio and an Amaray case for video, although for reissued products the artwork may differ from the original.

CreateSpace works with many of the leading music labels, television networks, film studios, and other distributors to make these titles available to Amazon.com customers. All products are manufactured from original source materials (e.g., for audio products, uncompressed CD-quality audio).

By eliminating inventory, waste, and inefficiencies in the distribution system, on-demand manufacturing provides the added benefit of helping preserve the environment.

When shopping, you'll see CD-R or DVD-R on the product detail page for such products. Amazon.com's standard return policy applies to these purchases.



So... they just burn the songs to a CD and mail it to me? wut? What kind of bootleg establishment is this?

I never heard of it, to take a guess from what I read it's only for things that are really not actively being published anymore. Such as Rush albums. Are you buying teh Rush?

I don't see what's wrong with this. It's legal, you get the same product, and your money ends up in the same place.

That said, amazon's MP3 service is great.
