Protecting audio streams, kind of....

If i were to offer songs up on a website, what is the best way to at least prevent easily downloading the files? I realize that anything streamed is cached and there are a multitude of audio capture software packages out there, i guess i am just wondering what is the best way to at least make it difficult? I know format changes help with the player, as most people are less inclined to download stuff they have to convert back to mp3 etc.... and i don't mean to start a philisophical debate, obviously anything put out on the intertubes, if someone wants it, they get it, I was just wondering what somewhat protective measures anyone out there is using to at least make it more difficult then going to your activity monitor in safari and copying the link to your downloads folder.....

any ideas?
