Streaming mp3 files over a website

Hi everybody,

I have a website selling copyrighted songs.
For every song there is a preview, that the customer can play by pressing a button, and this link is a direct link for an mp3 file that can be downloaded illegally, after viewing the source code.

I'm looking for a solution that will provide streaming (that how I decided to solve the problem, for a couple of reasons) solution, in which the mp3 file won't be downloadable.

I'm not interested in a solution forcing me to decode the mp3 files to another format.

What are the solutions I can consider implementing?

Thanks in advance!

Flash would be the easiest for streaming but you might need to do some obfuscation or encrypting if you only want the flash client to play the file since the stream will be capturable no matter what you do.
