Recording industry is so confident about Napster's case that it wants to avoid full-length trial and filed a request for summary judgment in Tueday asking court to rule that Napster had direct knowledge of the copyright infringement aided by its network of users.
"Napster's Web site advertised the piratical nature of the system by bragging that, `With Napster, you'll never come up empty handed when searching for your favorite music again'," attorneys for the recording industry wrote in their brief.

Napster's attorneys declined to comment.
