WHAT NAPSTER SAID TODAY WHICH THEY DENIED FOR THE LAST YEAR THAT THEY COULD FILTER OUT UNAUTHORIZED SONGS I THINK NAPSTER SAID ALL ALONG IT CAN NOT GO THROUGH AND GO INTO ITS FILES AND DETERMINE WHAT IS ALLEGEDLY A COPYRIGHT AND WHAT IS NOT.
Instead, Napster says it will remove the names of songs that the recording industry has identified as being unauthorized.
The offer comes after the recording industry filed suit claiming copyright infringement- and a court ordered Napster to shut down-
Napster appealed- but rather than wait for a judge in San Francisco to decide whether it could stay in business- Napster offered a concession. WE HAVE TO BOTH WORK TOGETHER I MEAN NAPSTER AND THE RECORDING INDUSTRY TO COME UP WITH SOLUTIONS AND WORK ON SOMETHING THAT PAYS THE ARTIST.))

Thomas' friend Kevin Williams said he left his Marlin rifle in Thomas' car the week before Munsey disappeared. Authorities linked shell casings fired from the gun to one near her body. The weapon though was never found.
