Good Argument for Burning Emulation, the iTunes store for windows.
The iTunes store allows you to burn protected music to a CD and then after that you are free to rip it to mp3 or whatever. Apple says so. So why not just cut out the middleman, and just create a virtual burner and burn the CDA files to a hard drive. It would save a lot on blank discs and would not really be violating any DRM agreements. Therefore, burning emulation should be implemented. I find it stupid to burn the cd, and then rip the cd back to the hard drive.
