But is it actually illegal to make a Napster in anywhere but the US? Nowhere else has a Digital Millenium Copyright Act.

For cris-sakes! Only a fool would try and turn a conversation on file sharing towards gun control. Trying to blame a manufacturer of ANY product for the abuse of same by a customer is insane and illogical.

Uh JLP… people have and still do try to sue gun companies when their model of gun is used in various crimes. And as nuihc pointed out, these actions are just as bad, if not worse, as trying to squash Napster. The erosion of personal accountability in this country, the DMCA a prime example of it, is making me sick.
