Napster will appeal

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 09 Aug 2001 4:43

Napster filed its legal briefs to appeal an injunction that would require it to block 100 percent of works identified by recording companies as copyrighted. Decision was made by federal court judge Marilyn Patel, but was stayed by appeals court.
Napster also complains about court-appointed technical advisor that judge Marilyn Patel ordered to oversee Napster's copyright-filter development in last spring. Company claims that technical advisor, A.J.Nichols, basically took over CTO's role in the company, involving himself in all technical decisions in the company.
