Napster retains (ahem) counsel. The right move I think. Along with the DeCSS case, this may be setting the precedent for what "intellectual property" and "public domain" mean in the 21st century. Hopefully, things will turn out better than in Sterling's "Distraction". Either way, things will never be the same.

Funny to say it, and I haven't thought through how I feel about Napster, but the fact that Boies took the case sure makes it all seem more credible to me. (Good brand that guy's got, I guess.)
