Napster, Napster, Napster.... I'm getting sick of hearing them whine about being shut down. Let's see... I post copyrighted material on the internet for all comers to grab FREE and expect the publisher to say "Oh that's ok we don't care if you rip us off!" Gimme a break. Quit complaining about being locked out and just learn to deal with it people. If you want music go down to the store and purchase it like the rest of us. Napster needs to find a way to charge for the copyrighted works and continue to have public domain music freely available. Seems simple to me.

Why don't they try to create a technology or server platform music companies could use to sell their music? Is it just that difficult to figure out how to vend music or is it that people just won't pay for the right to listen to it? Today we have software that's sold and software that's given away, why not have open source music. If folks want free music then find someone that's will to publish their work for free.

It's not a bad thing to have to pay for music folks. It allows the people that make it to keep on making it.
