Where would I find the Purchased Music folder on my system? I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.

Look for: ~/.ubuntuone/Purchased from Ubuntu One

I make a smart playlist of all my purchased music so I have it handy and then I can manipulate it from the music player when I want to make copies, etc.:

As mentioned by Jorge in another answer, there is a filesystem location for purchased music if you really need to know it. However, I never need to; you can drag tracks directly out of Rhythmbox or Banshee onto another folder if you want. My music player is way better at dealing with music than the filer is.
