    why does tennessee care? I share mine with a couple friends. Not much different than someone renting a movie, then letting their friend borrow it.

    Tennessee even charges sales tax on mp3 sales no matter where you buy them from. If you buy from a retailer outside the state it should not be taxable to Tennessee.

    I get it! I don't necessarily get the harshness of the usage but I do understand. You are paying for the service. If your friend or family member wants to use it pay for it! It's $9/month. Neutral

    Interesting to know how they are going to enforce that.
