Napster Takes Song's Fingerprints

Napster continues on its quest to appease the RIAA:

The latest version of Napster — Napster 2.0 Beta 10 — periodically scans the files its users are sharing and randomly singles out songs for fingerprinting. The program then uploads the fingerprints to the company's servers.

However, it seems that filtering based on these fingerprints is not currently turned on (yet).
