Judge gives bit more breathing space for Napster

Judge Marilyn Patel has issued a memorandum for RIAA, not for Napster, about the file screening process that is going on with Napster. She said that the record industry has misinterpreted a key appellate ruling in the case against Napster.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered Napster to remove all copyright-violating tracks from its system, but only after record labels have specifically listed the exact tracks that Napster has to remove from its system -- RIAA's attitude in recent weeks has been that they're only required to provide name of the artist to Napster and after that Napster should remove automatically all tracks from specified artist.
