The Napster facelift - strings attached
Author: JT Smith
NewsFactor Network writes: "Napster, the company that brought digital music trading to the masses only to be brought down by legal complications, has quietly provided the public with the information we've wanted about the future of its software. According to the Napster Web site, the company plans to launch a new music trading service in early 2002. But this time around, there will be a few strings attached. Unlike before, the new Napster service will keep its members from trading music the way the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) says we shouldn't."
