Napster: The players speak

Industry analysts, copyright attorneys and both sides of the Napster fight sound off on an appellate court decision that seems to favor the record industry.

Industry analysts, copyright attorneys and both sides of the Napster fight are sounding off on an appellate court decision that seems to favor the record industry.

The judges instructed a U.S. District Court to come up with a narrower injunction that would still require Napster to block the trading of copyrighted music.

Both Napster and the Recording Industry Association of America held press conferences Monday explaining their views on the decision. At the same time, industry pundits following the trial weighed in on the ruling and the future of Napster.
