Napster hearing set for March 2

Napster and the major record labels are heading into the courtroom again. A hearing to decide the fate of the online music file-swapping service is scheduled for March 2 at 10 a.m. PST before Judge Marilyn Hall Patel in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. Last week, a panel of appeals judges stopped short of shutting down Napster, telling Patel to create a narrower ruling that would still require the service to block the trading of copyrighted music. The judges also warned that Napster could be liable for huge financial damages.
