Magnatune does lend itself to a bit of confusion, but the confusion is
on the part of expectant browsers, not Magnatune. Magnatune does offer
downloads (somewhat hidden), but it wouldn't need to offer free
downloads at all in order to publish music under a Creative Commons
license. It could charge for media or downloads, but permit free
redistribution of music once obtained.
Personally I strongly prefer downloading to streaming, but those are
business strategies for Magnatune and others to explore, not license
(This topic would be more appropriate for cc-licenses
<http://creativecommons.org/discuss#license> than here.)
