Apple Helps Napster

This asks: "Is Apple scared of Napster?" The answer is that it seems so - Apple recently issued a press release pointing out that they sold more music than the reformed file-sharing service in its first week of legitimate, pay-based operation. This article points out that there's no need to give Napster any free publicity: Apple has 80% market share, even with Napster in operation, and they have a solid reputation. Napster's got two-year-old name recognition for free music and RIAA lawsuits. Basically: Motley Fool -> Napster: "Chill out!"
