Napster will go on in UK, Germany Brand name lives on in UK and Germany.
Last week, Rhapsody and Best Buy completed a deal which saw Napster subscribers and assets absorbed by the Rhapsody music subscription service. This was widely seen as the end of the Napster brand's controversial lifespan since it was first developed in 1998.

Now, a Napster spokesman told The Register that while Napster is more-or-less gone in the United States, the brand will still be used for music subscriptions in the United Kingdom and Germany, since Rhapsody has no presence in either market.

"There is no intention to close Napster in either Germany or the UK," he said.
