Just how the bloody hell do you think the mp3 is played in the flash 
plugin to begin with?  *The mp3 file is _downloaded_ and played!*

You can make it hard(er) for most casual web surfers to 'steal' your mp3 
files.  But, you _cannot_ prevent the more experienced web user from 
doing it.

Go ahead: implement all the snake oil offered in this thread and then 
come back and dare anyone to snag a copy of your mp3.

The best advice was already given you:  If you don't want anyone 
snatching a copy of your mpeg videos, do *not* upload them to your web
