Napster Files For Bankruptcy

Oh yeah...I forgot to post this bit, so I'll just use the news from another source and credit them. Napster, the most (in)famous of the internet file sharing company, have filed for bankruptcy, virtually bringing to an end a lengthy battle with the music industry. At its height, Napster boasted 60 million users, but it has been offline since July 2001, fighting attempts by record labels to shut it down. Various deals with these companies seem to offer Napster some sort of hope for the future, but with claimed liabilities of over $100 million, it seems as if that future has disappeared.
