This promises to be interesting, since, if the record companies don't own the Internet distribution rights, those rights are probably owned by the artists themselves. Of course, a for-profit piracy operation (oops, sorry, I meant "file-sharing service") like Napster doesn't provide compensation to the artists any more than it does to the record labels, so if the courts find that the distribution rights are held by artists rather than the labels the court situation will probably only get messier... ------------- Rick Anderson Director of Resource Acquisition The University Libraries University of Nevada, Reno "All Reviews in the world 1664 No. Virginia St. begin with the intention Reno, NV 89557 of being virtuous.
