Rhapsody is now Napster

Music streaming service Rhapsody will soon begin using the Napster brand name.
The service currently has 3.5 million customers, a respectable number, but well below Spotify, Apple and Google.

"No changes to your playlists, favorites, albums, and artists," says a blog post on Rhapsody's website. "Same music. Same service. Same price. 100% the music you love. Stay tuned!"

Napster, of course, started the music piracy revolution in the late 90s and has been widely credited with being part of the start of the downfall of the music industry. Rhapsody acquired the name Napster and some other IP in 2011.

For now, all we know is "Napster is coming" but there was little else in terms of details.
