Info on this blog is from: http://haacked.com/archive/2004/07/01/753.aspx That is very cool, though there may be a licensing issue with Amazon as Joshua Flanagan notes: I've thought about using the Amazon Web Services for similar purposes, but I believe it is a violation of their licensing agreement to store their images locally for more than 24 hours. So, in order for the Album Art feature to work, you would always need to be connected to the internet, so the image can be retrieved each day it is used. Check out the License Agreement link on http://amazon.com/webservices and see if you have a different interpretation. Well, I'm always connected. Lawyer friends, any thoughts? re: RESPONSE: That is interesting that they could place such a restriction on the album art as they could not possibly own the artwork. If anyone's copyrights were being violated it would be the publishers. Windows Media stores all album art locally on the pc. If you own the cd then you technically should be able to have the picture on your computer and not be in violation. I work for a law firm that has depts that specialize in copyright law. I'll post again if I can get some useful info from them. 3/12/2005 10:01 AM | Tesfaye
