Monday Morning Napster
from the it's-everywhere dept
Just looking at Wired and News.com this morning it looks like a big Napster Monday with stories everywhere. News.com is running a complete Napster roundup with a summary of the issues and four additional articles. Wired, meanwhile, points out that Napster itself might not be relevent any more and that a backlash has occurred since it kicked off 300,000 users thanks to Metallica’s whining. I’m beginning to get the feeling this whole Napster craze is a bit overplayed… Update: Here’s a good link to a story about Lars from Metallica and Chuck D debating pros and cons of Napster on the Charlie Rose show. It seems pretty clear that Lars is completely clueless on the matter. I didn’t see the broadcast myself, but it’ll probably be rebroadcast here in a couple of hours and I’ll try to catch it.
