Lawyers of Napster and RIAA held a conference call with court-appointed technology expert in Friday. Purpose of this conference call was to resolve disputes over Napster's compliance with an injunction barring the trading of copyrighted songs on the service.
Both sides declined to comment after the conference call and it's said that judge Patel has orderedthe transcript of the call sealed.

RIAA and Napster have been fighting over the technology Napster uses to block the copyrighted songs from its service -- Napster's current method is based on the file names of the songs and RIAA argues that those names with typos are still available through the service and that the users of the service know this and find songs just as easily as before the blocks.
