in reply to (OT) Stream MP3 but prevent user from downloading

Anything that you implement will be akin to the copy-protection on DVDs: it will prevent the casual user from getting a copy, but anyone who has the technical savy will. The fact of the matter is that you're sending a stream of 1's and 0's that represent an mp3. There's nothing that prevents someone from just saving those 1's and 0's to her hard drive for future use.
