GUEST,Ely Napster (72* d) RE: Napster 31 Jul 00

Comparing Napster to the Underground Railroad makes no sense unless one really feels that this music exists independently and is being held hostage by the artists. Slaves were stolen from their homelands by slave traders but music owes its existence to the musicians. Yes, there is a lot of music-industry baggage, but it's usually hard to bypass it without robbing the artist, too.
