Penn State University's deal with Napster: sweet or sour? - CD Freaks.com: "Last week Napster announced a deal with the Pennsylvania State University that, simply said, would give all students of the University free music downloads. Although the deal sounded pretty sweet it really wasn't as students were not allowed to take downloaded music home nor were they able to transfer the songs to CD's or portable music players.
This aside, thanks to Quakester2000 and GristyMcFisty for their tips, The Register reports about an interesting fact. It seems that a man called Barry K. Robinson, who sits on Penn State University's Board of Trustees, also serves as senior counsel for none other than the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). A very handy coincidence!"
More good links on the site. This stuff is so shifty. I refuse to buy music that is artificially hamstrung. Besides, if it ain't an MP3 (a real one) it's not playing on my phone anyway.
