Sony still doesn't get it

Sony Music put a legal pressure to Napster to get the Manic Street Preacher's new album away from the Napster "distribution". Sony also requested Napster to remove all users spreading this album, and yesterday Napster finished this action.
Sony seems to be protective even now when all the signs show that this war should end -- spreading MP3s increases music sales. And another funny fact about this case was the fact that this time Napster removed users and files from their system much faster than in Metallica's case -- influence of Bertelsmann is here..
