An interview

An interview with the lawyers from Napster and Metellica. Good points, both.

First it was Metallica's integrity for sale...

First it was Metallica's integrity for sale... now the RIAA's Soul and Integrity is for sale. Funny, I didn't think they had a soul. Shamelessly stolen from Fark

Napster users are named in the latest battle

Napster users are named in the latest battle Some have admitted to being a criminal while others say who cares? Metallica sure doesn't seem like it is going to back down. The article says Metallica is scheduled to chat with fans online at the Artistsdirect.com Web site to explain its fight against Napster. So is any action going to be taken against the fans who want the music?

WTF!?! Everyone's favorite band (back in high school) Metallica is suing Napster and a handful of universities

WTF!?! Everyone's favorite band (back in high school) Metallica is suing Napster and a handful of universities for unlawful trading of their music. This is ridiculous, and I hope it doesn't set a precedence. If anyone would just slap a revenue model on napster so artists could get paid for their work, none of this piracy crap would happen. And Metallica, what about the other apps that do the same thing, are you going to sue them too? And what about every other band on earth? What do you expect to get out of universities, tighter controls over bandwidth, or student monitoring of internet usage? What about every cable modem and DSL provider that lets people use Napster, are you going after them too? Why don't you sue everyone on earth that's heard your songs but didn't pay for them? Side question: Is it better to burn out or fade away?
