The record companies don't care what format the material is in, they care 
what the actual content is and whether or not you have permission to stream 
it. I'm not very clued up on the particulars.  Only Thompson will care if 
you stream in MP3.

The slower the link, the lower the bitrate of the stream that they'll be 
able to listen to.   You may have to do some tests to figure out what they 
can manage.  Typically, people using 56k modems will have trouble with much 
over 40kbps, 33.6k modem users will have trouble with much over 24kbps.
