makes you ponder on the irony of them opening with "The Ecstacy of Gold" hmmmm

Metallica had 300,000 of their most devoted fans banned from Napster. Do you think these 300,000 people are ever going to purchase another Metallica CD? Talk about lost CD sales!
To date, more than 30,000 Metallica fans have come forward and sworn under penalty of perjury that they were identified in error.
Many music lovers find and sample music they like on Napster, then go out an buy the CD. In reality many CDs are now being sold for artists that millions of people didn't know existed before they found them on Napster.
The Record Company CEOs are playing a game with the Napster type of web sites. They are most likely using artists like Metallica and now others. It's a "You ain't gonna get our music for free" game. It's a "Ha, I gotcha" game. And humans love to play those games.

Money good. Napster good. Metallica bad.

It makes you wonder if we´re talking about the same Metallica that used to have a special area for bootlegers at their gigs.
The same Metallica who said bootlegs and MP3´s fueled the hype around the band.
I wish greedy people like that would crawl up their own asses and disapear.

No- it's the new Metallica that cut their hair, got their belly buttons pierced and do gigs with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. They crawled up their own asses long ago.

You are correct sir.

So, what's the catchphrase for this enlightened viewpoint? Maybe "Napster good, change bad" or maybe "longhair good, shorthair bad".
And I thought the issue was "the music, for the peeps".
