GUEST,Ely Napster (72* d) RE: Napster 30 Jul 00


I would not be against Napster if it were ONLY used as a medium to "test-drive" artists--listening without downloading (after all, we do not pay to listen to the radio). Actually, I use CDnow for this--I can listen to enough clips of music to get an idea of what the artist sounds like and whether I want to pursue the album. But I would never download whole songs for the purpose of making my own CD, which is, I am sorry to say, what nearly all of my fellow students do who use Napster. If artists were paid every time someone downloaded their songs, I would not object. If I like an artist that much, I should want them to get the money they earned for their talent and the time they put into the music.
