NAPSTER LOOKS INTO THE ABYSS - AGAIN: You thought everyone was happy with the new, all-compliant Napster, didn't you? Only it turns out that isn't so. Sight Sound Technologies is trying to get them shut down: they're unhappy that Napster is infringing one of their patents. Napster had been negotiating its way out of trouble, only to piss SightSound off by asking to be allowed to distribute videos for free. Now, SightSound have asked the District Court of Western District, Pennsylvania, to force Napster to close. Again.

We're not sure we'd be taking out any long-period subscriptions with the service until this one's been settled.
