Napster online until trial starts

Two federal appeals judges Friday granted Napster Inc. a stay allowing the wildly popular music trading service to remain online - at least temporarily.
The service was facing a midnight PDT deadline for shutting down after a lower court judge sided with the recording industry, which claimed Napster allows users to violate copyrights.
Even though the Recording Industry Association of America could still appeal Friday's decision - either to the full 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals or the U.S. Supreme Court - Napster employees screamed jubilantly at hearing a stay had been issued, a company spokeswoman said.
Friday's ruling means Napster can remain in operation at least until the lawsuit goes to trial; no trial date has been set.
Contrary to what many music bussiness stars like Metallica, Eminem and Christina Aguilera think, Robbie Williams approves of the idea behind Napster. The former Take That member said that he has already made enough money and that if people want to have his music for free that should be their right.
It is true however that Williams did not know what Napster is and the interviewer had to explain it to him. Robie's third album will be available August 28.
Check out the Metallica Napster video from the links below, it has an interesting, yet weird video of the Metallica members opinions of Napster.
Speak out and make yourselves heard.

Ok, I understand why the Music industry is so pi$$ed off, I mean they are loosing money by the 6 digits, but then again, wtf do they care, theres always the loyal fans who'll spend hundreds of hard earned dollars to support them, leave Napster alone, besides being able to download the so called

Metallica Rulezand you only hate them becausethey are trying to get rid of napsterthe rippoff tool to get u free musicif you want a preview that whatradio stations are for and most musicshops let u listen to it before u buy.the only bands that would support napsterwould be the ones that don't put mucheffort into their music and dont givea shit how there music is usedhow would u feel like it if you had aband and people got your music for freeand not payed for it then that meansyou would be getting nothing no moneythat means your band would be doing itfor free and where would the money comefrom to cover the cost of runningthe band nowhereNo money=No Band=No MusicI support my bands by buying therealbums and if the music suck i willnot buy nore would i download it orlisten to it.

I bought a ****ing cd because i heard the songs on napster. What does that say? I dont feel like ****ing putting 30 cds in and out of my computer when i can just play them all. What the **** do you think i am RICH? hell no so **** off i aint gonna go out and buy 10, 3 disc cd players, so fuk that, besides my car cd player can't play ****ing mp3s, so why else would i have it?

Its retarded that napster is being shut down. For the reasons such as, radio stations play music 24/7, those are illegal. Now that it's been given to us, everyone's going to bitch and completely stop buying cds because we finally know which bands are in if for the money. **** the money, sure its fun, but do you think the beatles give a **** about their music on napster??? I doubt it. Most bands ****ing have enough money as it is, and people who get mp3s still buy cds, its just sometimes they want to hear the song first. just to see. I think its a rip off to buy a 20 dollar cd for one good song. So the single comes out right? but what if you dont want to waste 2 - 5 bucks on the single? I sure don't, cuz i know in a week or so ill be sick of it. Im tired of wasting my money of disappointing cds that im only going to like for a week or two. So get real because I buy the cds i like, so i can keep them for good. Music comes and goes, and sometimes its hard to find some songs out there, especially if you only want one.

TO Metalrulez:Perhaps you might think of taking a little of that money you spend on Metallica CDs and invest it in some grammar and/or English lessons. Napster is not about ripping off artists, or their music, it's about being able to listen to the music you want, when you want. The songs that I have downloaded, or will download in the future, are songs that I would not purchase anyway. I do not

i think napster is a great way of testing out the music you want to hear. if you want to buy a good cd, you must first know the type of songs that are going to be on the cd and you must like them. if you download it from napster and you don't like it, then don't buy the cd. if you download the song you wish from napster and you do like it then buy the cd. napster is a great way to test out music.

EVERYONE is right.MetalLICKA! you all stink. I mean Enter Sandman was good, but the rest of yer music is goddamn crap anyway. why in the hell do u complain?? is it because nobody buys yer CDs and u blame napster when u know it's just cause u just plain suck??Jesus Christ. maybe it's just cause nobody was downloading or sending yer stuff at napster and u thought a little controversey would speed things up? Wrong.Metalisucks!

It not just the artist that make too much money but the recording industry (very greedy) and they just can't get enough. It is about time the they got a taste of their own medicine with technology being on the consumer side to stop the recoding industry from overcharging the consumer for music.

Well napster may be cool but it IS illegal in all it's aspects. Period. Until now I haven't heard a single serious or substantial argument favoring napster. Metallica is already rich? Who has the right to say it, how rich can you get? Copyright is just what it is, a right, and it's owners may use or dispose of it the way they want to, and that's it. Unhappy about having to pay for music? Then don't listen to it!

To all you mutherfukkers out there prasing Metalligreed out there all i got to say is this. I went to the Summer Sanatarium tour when it came to Atlanta GA. The main reason i went was to see Korn but i was kinda lookin forward to seeing Metalligreed playing. And then you know what happened? ****in Metalligreed didnt even play. So all you Dumb bastards out there defending them, you need to get a ****in life. Metalligreed doesnt give a shit about any of their fans if they are the headliner at a concert and they dont even ****in play.

And one more thing, lets just say they do shut down napster. Then whats gonna bapster or capster or mapster from coming out. Even if metalligreed does win they still wont effect anything someone else will just make another download program. By the way all napster users: if you wanna backup download program that is kinda cool but not as good as napster then check out [url removed]
