Napster is gone It's just a matter of when it will take effect, so far there is no time or date.

"It looks like a bittersweet ruling for Napster," said Wayne Chang, a Massachusetts high school student who once helped moderate Napster's bulletin boards. "The question that I want to know is whether Napster will be allowed to continue its service."

The answer, analysts and legal experts said Monday, is that the service may not survive in its current form.

As I understand it, It will be shut down after it goes to another judge who has to impose copyright restrictions.

When will that be? Nobody Knows! I do know they were shut down around august for a few days and won an appeal which got them back online temporary. temporary has been 5 months so far. It's like: Good for you, Im over here now cause you said what to who.

Dig deep in your soul and find yourself
cause mind control could turn you into someone else,
So fast your head will probably spin the fuck right off.

Thanks Stingray. When it is shut down another one will open up. If the record industry would have any sense they would leave napster alone cause its free promotion for there groups.

First off, remove Napster. Then goto www.mynapster.com and get WinMX. You can connect to napster servers, along with other napster places too. This way when they upgrade their servers to encode mp3s, you can work around that.

Diceman when i do this will i be able to download songs faster even though i have a 56k modem?

Nah, it's slower... It's a system hogger too. You could get Napigator and just goto the OpenNap servers (non Npaster servers) and use them.

Music City is a good place to get File Share.
