The full U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has refused to re-hear Napster about their appeal of the injunction that requires Napster to filter out copyrighted music from their service. With the appeal Napster wanted to overturn the injunction and also wanted the appeals court to reconsider the ruling that Napster is liable for contributory and vicarious copyright infringement.
The appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was concidered a long shot by legal experts. The only remaining alternative for Napster is to appeal to the U.S. Supreme court.
