Google now has a search feature for rock videos. You can check out a favorite artist and watch thirty seconds of a rock video. Then you're told: "The download is $1.99."

They aren't giving it away. They gave you enough so you could check the quality and make a decision on whether to buy it.

If you don't think it's worth it, or if you don't have the money,don't buy it.

Same thing at or iTunes. You can hear a 30 second sample. Like it? BUY it. That's how the artists and their partners make money. It's a business.

30 seconds is all most artists want to give away free.
