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

If the thread is not played out, I have a question. What exactly does Napster actually DO?

(A) Someone with a CD uploads a tune to the Napster system, which stores the tune. Later, someone calls Napster, requests the tune, and downloads it directly from the system.

(B) Someone with a tune in his computer calls Napster and reports its availability. Napster stores his URL as a link to that particular tune. Later, someone asks Napster where to find the tune, and Napster provides the link. The requester downloads the tune from the first user's website.

(C) Something else.

Seems a small point, but it might make a difference in the outcome of the case. Appreciate your help! == Johnny
