Napster banned 317,377 users

Napster removed all the users from their databases based on the list that Metallica provided to the company later in this month. So, if you have shared Metallica's tracks (uploaded or downloaded, either way) its very likely that your account is now deleted.
Napster still has a form in their website that allows people, who are sure that they are NOT pirated Metallica's tracks, to complain about their removal. Anyway, fill the form only if you're 100% sure that you haven't shared any Metallica files, since the disclaimer in the form says that the users who are shared those files and now fill out this form, might be prosecuted by Metallica.
