    How did Metallica find out who had Metallica files on their computer in order to ban them?

    I believe they simply did searches for the songs on Napster, made note of the user names, and then subpena'd the information on user ID's from Napster, and so on.

    I know they hired some outside firm (I forget the name) that makes it their business to "police the web" for companies and individuals to protect their intellectual property.

    So basically they went on Napster and did a little internet vigilantism (however that word is spelled )
