If the RIAA & Metalligreed get their way and the use of Napster is deemed illegal, then it may just force the mp3 community back the way it was before... with FTP sites, email sends, websites and standard search engines... (ie the way it was BEFORE Napster came along) - I used to find MP3s quite easily then and can't see a problem if it happens again...


If Napster is demmed illegal, I predict that Napster will have a slight UI change to accept a IP address at startup and that non-US, rogue Napster server sites will pop up, which will end-around any US court ruling. The server site address may have to keep changing, but the current site addresses will certainly be published in USENET news groups or bulletin boards. The worst case impact for Napster user is that they will have to get an easy to find IP address before logging into the rogue Napster servers.

Not only has the train left the station, it is totally out of sight.

all aboard,
