Turmoil at Napster Moves the Service Closer to Bankruptcy "The apparent collapse of Napster is mixed news for the record companies. On one hand, they are watching the final spasms of an archnemesis, a company they assert cost them tens of millions of dollars in lost sales. And they do not have to face Napster in a full trial whose outcome was not certain. ...
On the other hand, the record companies do not now have a chance to collect any damages for copyright infringement, a chance they would have had at trial."

Tangent: first instance of Blogger data loss this morning; lost some links after posting to the service; sigh...
