And you pay whatever you like for them. Yes, you set whatever price you like. Options include:
When you purchase the song, moreover, you can select up to 5 people to whom you can email a link to the song.

- a standard price (CAN$0.99);
- self-determined price - pay now; or
- self-determined price - pay later (to facilitate try-before-you-buy).
I just saw her perform in concert here in SF, and she summed it up this way: "I want to treat people the way I'd like to be treated. I don't like being treated like a child, so I won't be doing that to other people."
