Napster filtering ineffective according to judge

Written by Jari Ketola @ 11 Apr 2001 14:56

U.S. District Court Chief Judge Marilyn Hall Patel doesn't think Napster is doing a good job filtering out copyrighted recordings from their service. Instead she appointed a neutral technical expert to see if Napster could improve the filtering efforts.
According to Napster the original court ruling states that record labels have to hand out exact names of the artists and songs they want removed. Judge Patel, and the record labels, on the other hand feel that the name of the artist and the album should be sufficient.

The issue is now pretty much in the hands of the neutral technical expert A.J. Nichols, who will present his initial findings this Friday.
