    I’ve not actually looked into We7, but guess from your comment that they have appended or prepended the ads to an mp3 file.

    In that case while Audacity would help, there are actually a variety of tools that can losslessly trim audio from mp3 files.

    Fission on Mac OS X is a particularly pleasant one:

    We here at Casa Strange Attractor are big fans of Rogue Amoeba. Audio Hijack and Airfoil are two of our faves. We still are hoping to twiddle with the settings to play the audio from video in time. But that is a bit of a trick in ‘ole VLC.

    Thanks for the heads up about Fission. Hmmm…I’ll have to turn the Guardian Podcast team onto this one. ;)

    Dave: I do rather applaud the idea of trying to find new business models for distributing music, but I don’t think any of the obvious ones are going to work! Appending ads to the songs, as We7 says it does, is just way too obvious. It won’t be long before there’ll be a service that compares the file to, say, a canonical reference and automatically deletes anything additional, such as an ad.

    I think they’re going to have to get a lot more creative than that!
