NAPSTER’S DAYS STILL NUMBERED

Appeals Court Sets Deadline for Swappery, RIAA to Drop Briefs
Like a whiny little girl running to mommy, beaten and bruised file-sharing concern Napster has gone back to the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals to tell on mean old Judge Marilyn Hall Patell, who recently told the company it couldn’t switch its servers back on until it could prove its file filtering systems were 100% effective. Well boo-hoo-hoo.

As Dale Earnhardt used to say: "Tie a kerosene rag around your ankles so the ants don’t get up there and eat that candy ass."

According to published reports, the Appeals Court has given Napster until Aug. 9 to file an appeal brief in the matter, after which the major labels suing Napster for copyright infringement will have 28 days to file their "I know you are, but what am I?"

This all got pretty boring a long time ago, but there is a slight chance that the court will grant Napster the emergency stay it’s seeking, which would mean they could tell Judge Patell to stick it where the sun don’t shine and flip the switch so that the two or three users they have left can exchange song files of their mothers whistling "Dixie." Ah, the glamour and intrigue that is the online revolution.
