    So I try to get on Napster today, and I get a message that I'm being blocked. The first screen tells me that it's due to infringement on the Roy Orbison song catalogue. There is a list of some 20 songs, the only one I ever downloaded being Pretty Woman, which I only had long enough to burn to a CD, and it was only available for sharing briefly. And this was at least 4 months ago that I had it and got rid of it.

    The next page is funny. It says my account will remain blocked unless I provide them with all my pertinent info (full name, address, email etc); here's what it says This form must, as you will see, include your full real name, complete address, your Napster user name (i.e., the user name which you were using at the time we received the notice and had to block your account), and your consent to being sued in the federal court where you reside by the copyright holder.

    Hmmmm, I just don't see myself providing that information. What a scam. I've been kicked off for something I had for maybe an hour, and that was last year. Guess I might as well de-install my Napster now.

    From now on, Oh Pretty Woman is my least favorite Diver Down song.

    Napster's over.....

    Guess I won't bothering to log on again. Oh well.

    I was going to uninstall it as soon as they starting blocking everything, guess now's the time.

    Those are the two pages of info I was linked to trying to get on Napster. Anybody care to interpret? Do I need a lawyer?

    I was going to just de-install Napster and forget about this. Just my luck, I'll try to apply for a job when I'm 50 and they'll say, "wait a minute, it says here you listened to Pretty Woman once in 2000, please leave immediately before we RELEASE THE HOUNDS".

    Has anybody else been blocked from Napster like this?

    I never was threatened to be sued, but was kicked off months ago. Probably a year really. I had to upgrade to use it, and when you upgraded you got kicked off. It sucks.

    Hey Glenn, I chatted with a guy on Napster about four days ago and he told me he heard that a guy got banned for downloading Roy Orbison!

    I didn't know you were a fan of his, or I would have warned you.

    Glenn, Track 5 got the same treatment months ago with about the same dialog, for downloading metalica.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I knew T5 had also gotten the boot, didn't know it was with the same type of message. I guess that's good, since if T5 isn't in jail for his Napster crime, maybe I'll be okay.

    Maybe if that TV show The Fugitive runs out of story ideas, they can have the guy get chased by the Napster police for a season or two.

    What the freak? I just tried my Napster and it still works. I have an older version though.

    Glenn, they booted you for a Roy Orbison song? He's been dead for years. I doubt he's too concerned about lost royalties Maybe Lars owns Roy's publishing now.

    I was downloading as recently as this morning with no apparent recourse. I don't blame Napster though, I blame the nickle and diming record companines and the artists like Metallica who've bought the company line that they (the band) are losing revenue.
