Commentary: Napster's ball of confusion
Author: JT Smith
ZDNet's Todd Spangler mulls over the latest developments with the online music sharing service: "EMusic President and Chief Executive Gene Hoffman, for one, believes Napster is being disingenuous. "It seems Napster would rather shut down user accounts than to deal directly with the problem of illegally distributed files," Hoffman said. EMusic said it tried to negotiate a more "consumer-friendly way" to resolve the dispute between the two companies, but Napster refused to cooperate.""
