Artists Sound Off On Napster

Here. And a couple of the representative comments...

"Most people I know who use Napster listen to stuff they've never heard before. And then they get psyched and go out and buy the damn records. It's more like a sampler."
- Ian MacKaye, recording artist, Fugazi and co-owner of Dischord Records,, 1/8/2001

"The cool thing about Napster is that it...encourages enthusiasm for music in a way that the music industry has long forgotten to do."
-- Thom Yorke (Radiohead), 10/9/2000
