If the file download numbers released Tuesday by Webnoize are any indication, Napster fans
had better keep their fingers crossed that Napster's potential deal with MusicNet goes through.


According to Webnoize, Napster downloads fell 87 percent from February to May, dropping
all the way from 2.79 billion music files two months ago to 360 million last month.
Webnoize said the drastic fall in Napster's download activity is the result of the filters
the site implemented to block the transfer of copyrighted music files,
in order to comply with a U.S. district court injunction.

Not a problem -

I just found better software that also resumes mp3 downloads (unlike Napster) so I'm actually better off now . . . .
Thanks

As Far As I'm Concerned Napster Can Go Screw Themselves. From What Ive heard They Not Only Want To Charge You For The Service But Your Files Disappear If You Cancel The Subscription! That Is A load Of Bull! You Cant Even Put These Files On A CD and Play them In A Stereo Without Special Equipment And They Expect Us To Pay To RENT these Files! HA! I Wont Give One Red Cent To Them Or Any Other Site That Follows Them. As Far As I'm Concerned These Music Sites Need Not Forget That If It Were Not For People Like Us Who Visit These Sites And Give Them Volume That They Would'nt Even Be Able To Make Money Off Advertizing! I Say That What Thay're Doing Is Foolish And They Will Be Out Of Business Soon If I Have Anything To Do With It!!!

Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
