Sick-o twist in Napster saga

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 02 Jun 2000 16:49

Mega-popular punk/rock band Offspring has started selling Napster merchandise on their website. This contains Napster caps, T-shirts and stickers!!
Now, what makes this new twist very weird, is the fact that band doesn't have Napster's permission to sell this stuff, and forced by U.S. trademark laws, Napster has to sue band for copyright infrigements because otherwise they can lose their trademark.. But propably there is just an easy way for Napster to give Offspring legal permission to sell these items..

Offspring is the single most popular band that has publicly supported Napster and fans right to spread copyrighted music through it.
