Pay for sure. That's about it.

by Volker Weber

Customers who have purchased music from Microsoft's now-defunct MSN Music store are now facing a decision they never anticipated making: commit to which computers (and OS) they want to authorize forever, or give up access to the music they paid for. Why? Because Microsoft has decided that it's done supporting the service and will be turning off the MSN Music license servers by the end of this summer.

Same thing works for Vista et. al. Should Microsoft decide to not activate your old operating system anymore, you are out of luck.

Repeat after me: DRM is bad for the customer.
