Note this dodginess lurking in the artists email - "MP3.com will perform a final artist 
accounting and check distribution on or around December 1, 2003. Any artist account with a 
balance of at least $25.00 will qualify to receive a payment in the final artist accounting 
(reduced from the usual requirement of $50.00). "

So if mp3.com owes you less than $25.00, they aren't going to bother paying you !
