In December 1999, the Recording Industry Association of America filed a lawsuit against Napster, the California based file swapping company, accusing them of massive copyright infringement. Since then, we have witnessed a precedent-setting legal case unfold. With over 25 million users, Napster is by far the most popular file-swapping sites and has created one of the most successful softwares in terms of ease of use and consumer adoption. The battle is for the definition of copyrights in the new technological millennium. As evidenced by the DVD cracking code case in New York to lawsuits against MP3.com and Scour, the RIAA and other interested parties have made it known that they will be defending their copyrights and the traditional legal interpretations of these copyrights to the fullest. While on the other end of the spectrum, companies such as Napster and MP3.com, have pushed the case for a logical revisiting of copyright rules to reflect the new dynamics & technological innovations of the 'Net-conomy.

Since the lawsuit was filed against Napster by the RIAA on December 7th, MusicDish has taken an extensive look at the issues raised by this case, from the legal to the philosophical. Joyce Dollinger and Eric de Fontenay provide us with a detailed legal perspective of both sides. Ram Samudrala continues his ground-breaking views on music in "The RIAA s. Free Music." David Weekly dovetails into the technology behind file swapping and where it will lead in "Client As Server: The New Model." In addition, artists join the discussion on a legal case that will affect them most.

Finally, MusicDish presents its "Definitive Guide to Using Napster." Featuring tutorials on issues spanning "File sharing concepts," "Is it legal to use Napster?," "Limiting users access," and "Control your security," the guide provides a comprehensive overview of the controversial software.
