this advice is definitely worth more than a cup of coffee. i'm a drumnbass head and a whole lot of artists in that genre use their music as like a resume item, and end up getting gigs that way for making music for commercials tv movies video games, mastering gigs, etc.
ps it doesnt sound like any of this flash stuff or anything else people are mentioning would impede Audio Hijack for a second... i think your best bet is to just make edits in your tunes that make them unacceptable for listening purposes; like, every 30 seconds put a flash of noise in there, or skip around chronologically, that sort of thing. the track will still eventually get out there in its entirety but you can at least stop it from happening until you make that first dime off it
