Napster as a brand name is big. But is it going to be a hinderance rather than a benefit? It carrys a lot of baggage along with it. I really cannot see much use for the name and anything that it is used for will be a poor lie for what it once was.

Hey Cool! Maybe integrated CD-Burning in your P2P!!! This is wonde… wait… Roxio, WTF! :4

buying Napster is just a waste of money, I would think. I mean, lets be real now, it’s a non working program for what, 3 years now? everyone that does file-sharing knows to use the other programs. I think they should just use their resources to make their own thing. but this is just my opinion.

I haven’t heard of anyone speak about Napster in over a year now. I would say that there are a lot of filesharing newbies out there who probably don’t even know what Napster is! Anyway, if Napster ever start going again, I’m pretty much certain that it will never be a free filesharing network again, i.e. like it use to be.
