Russian prosecutors have apparently decided not to take any action
(previously discussed here
) , a Russian website which offers copyrighted mp3's for sale.
The Moscow prosecutors reason is that Russian copyright laws only apply to physical media such as CD's tapes etc., not to digital media. If this decision is upeld, will it open the floodgates for others to start openly selling copyrighted material?

While I'm not a huge Hole fan, Courtney Love's letter to other recording artists
makes me look at her a bit differently. The letter is a pretty strong plea for them to organize a union representing their interests. With all of the press that has been genereated over the RIAA/Napster
battle, do you think the timing is right?

And in other news, Indiana University announced today
that they're developing jointly with Napster
a solution to the congestion problem the MP3-sharing program can cause (which has led to Napster being blocked by campuses nationwide). Access to Napster will be reinstated on campus for a two-week period starting March 25 to test this new method. This new method will soon be made available for web developers at http://bestpath.iu.edu
