FROM THIS EPISODE

The record industry is up in arms over MP3 technology, and now Napster.com, an online music-sharing program that the industry says is stealing music and stealing profits from artists and record companies. Regardless of the outcome of a Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) lawsuit, the litigation will break new legal ground in the ongoing controversy surrounding online music. And, as Napster itself puts it: It also raises some critical issues about the future of online communities, digital distribution and the methods used by the recording industry to further their agenda. Guests include a frequent user of Napster technology; Danny Goldberg, an online entrepreneur who once ran Mercury Records; Mike Greene of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences; and Chuck Philips, the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the Los Angeles Times. The MP3 of this show is available at RioPORT.com.
