Penn State Students Pissed Off About Napster Deal
from the ooops dept
This probably wasn't what administrators at Penn State were expecting after working out the deal to let on-campus students access Napster music streams without charge to the students. Instead of being happy, many Penn State students are pissed off at administrators for wasting their money. Despite the Penn State claims that the service is "free", clearly the university is paying for the service, and those fees will be reflected in tuition - or at least, they'll be withheld from something else on campus. The students say they don't want to be forced to pay money to a recording industry they don't agree with, who is giving them something of extremely limited value (no downloads, just a limited choice of streams - and only if you happen to be on campus).
