As a long time fan of Napster and file-sharing systems I would like to tell you that I think your missing the whole point of Napster. Napster encourages and promotes music awareness for bands and the market place for music. You state in your article that you are afraid we will see a “decline in the quantity and quality of what was published.” If anything the complete opposite of this will happen. When people listen to music and enjoy it, they will go to the record store and buy it, regardless of where they hear it.
And if you look at the record sales they are the highest they’ve been in history. So let me ask you how something: how is Napster hurting the quality of music and the quantity of music being made? Frankly at a certain point you have to let people have their music and stop being Internet Nazis.
