Music swappers not magpies

You give (qualified) thumbs up to Napster

More than 3,000 of you voted in our last poll, the most votes ever cast at PCAdvisor.co.uk. The result: a resounding two fingers to the music industry.

More than eight in 10 readers disagreed with the proposition 'Napster should be shut down because its users are thieving magpies'.

Comments on our discussion forums in the Registered Users Area however, suggest a less equivocal reaction.

Many felt that, though Napster is forcing the music industry to hear the faint cry of the future, its users are taking food out of musicians' mouths.
