Napster Judge

U.S. District Judge Marilyn Hall Patel issued her long anticipated injunction in the Napster case today. The injunction says that record companies seeking to have Napster block access to their material need to provide the internet song-swapping service with the song title, the name of the artist, the name of the file holding the song, and proof of copyright ownership. Napster would then have 72 hours to comply. NPR's Rick Karr reports.
