CNN: “The beat goes on for Napster”

Napster has been issued a temporary stay on the temporary injunction which would have forced it to shut down its servers.

AP: “A federal appeals court panel has granted
Napster a stay allowing the music trading service to stay online at
least temporarily.

“A federal judge had ordered Napster earlier this week to stop
its business of helping people share copyrighted music for free
over the Internet. That preliminary injunction was supposed to have
gone into effect at midnight, Pacific time.”

Lisa M. Bowman, ZDNet News: “Appeals court says don’t stop the music on Napster

“The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has granted Napster Inc.’s motion to stay a judge’s ruling that could have effectively shut down the song-sharing site. Details to follow.”
