Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 20 Apr 2000 21:04

After Dr.Dre requested Napster to remove all his tracks from Napster's databases or he would file law suits against the company as Metallica has already done, Napster answered to Dr.Dre in Wednesday. Napster said that its ok to remove all his tracks if he can identify the users who spread his tracks :-) Well, since Napster's user database is pretty impressive, hundreds of thousands of users, its basically impossible to do this kind of a task.
So, now Dr.Dre will file law suit against Napster after his Friday deadline. And the lawyer that represents Dr.Dre and also Metallica, says that bunch of other artists, including The Offspring, are joining to suit pretty soon..
