buymusic.com sells (well, "sublicenses") music encoded in WMA (Windows Media Audio) format.
Niether Archos nor Rockbox plays this format; to play this format would require replacing or possibilily recoding the decoder chip in the Archos. This would probably require access to copyrighted Microsoft data/formats, and in any case, buymusic's EULA limits playing to "authorized devices", which would require Rockbox making an agreement with buymusic probably precluded by Rockbox's GPL licensing.
Take home message: if you want to legally purchase music to play on your Rockbox, check out emusic.com.
