There arc those who believe that Napstcr detrimental to artists is and infringes on copyright laws, essentially stealing creations. their Others enjoy the convenience Napster in allowingthem a x a s to of such a wide database of music. Another benefit is to sample the rtcord before you spend the money on it. The ethics and legality Napster have been of questioned, and w l i now be judged in federal court.
