NAPSTER DEADLINE BRINGS CROWDS

Last-Minute Frenzy Causes Panic Attacks And 92% Traffic Increase - Founders Can Thank Judge Patel
There's no such thing as bad publicity.

Thanks to the hype surrounding the company's legal troubles with the RIAA and fear of impending inability to get free MP3s of Al Stewart's "Time Passages," Napster's traffic soared last week.

From Tuesday, July 25, the day before U.S. District Judge Marilyn Patel granted the RIAA's injunction against Napster, to Friday, July 28, the day the company was supposed to shut down, traffic to the netco's site jumped 92%. According to Nielsen//NetRatings, the site went from 686,157 unique viewers on Tuesday to well over 800,000 on both Friday and Saturday, with the all-important page views going from 1.5 million to 3 million and 2.9 million.

Just over 3% of all active home computers in the used Napster on Friday and Saturday. Additionally, Friday's downloads of the Napster software doubled from the day before.

Now if only they could figure out a legal way to make money off of it.
