Metallica Sues Napster
from the more-lawsuits dept
This one I think is pretty silly. The band Metallica is suing Napster and three universities for not blocking Napster. This is ridiculous. First off, suing the universities for not blocking Napster is stupid. Why don’t they just sue every ISP for not blocking Napster? Or, how about the US Gov’t for supporting the internet in the first place? All the computer companies? They must be to blame somewhat as well. Also, I like how Metallica claims that for each copy of the song they are losing $100,000. Somehow, I doubt that each person who copied a Metallica song would have paid $100,000 for it otherwise. If anything, I think Metallica is probably going to piss off more people this way, whereas before, at least people were enjoying their music.
