Napster lays off 15%

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 24 Oct 2001 15:09

Napster announced today its history's first round of layoffs, handing out pink slips for 16 members of its staff or 15% of total 104 employees. Layoffs weren't targeted on any specific division of the company and were made -- just like any other layoffs in any other company -- to cut the costs.
Napster has developed its legal service last year or so and has received about $100 from Bertelsmann, mostly in loans, to fund its operations until the service launches, which should happen before the end of the year.
