DIGITAL MUSIC USERS SHOW SUPPORT TO SENATORS

Senators Hatch & Leahy Receive 70,000 E-Mails
From Fans Of Napster, MP3.com
Two Senators have received a combined 70,000 e-mails as of Monday (7/17) mainly from fans of digital music-swapping after an appeal for support by online music companies Napster and MP3.com, Reuters reports.

"We need your help to get this message to Congress as soon as possible,'' Napster CEO Hank Barry wrote in a letter posted Friday (7/14) on the company's site.

Last week, rock musicians, online entrepreneurs and record execs met before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the future of digital music (hitsdailydouble.com, 7/10).

Jeanne Lopatto, a spokeswoman for Republican Orrin Hatch, said the senator had received over 30,000 e-mails on the issue as of Monday. A spokesman for Democrat Patrick Leahy said he had received over 40,000 e-mails as of Monday.

No confirmation from either Senator that the large number of e-mails interfered with their abilities to enter their favorite porn chat rooms.
