Napster Given Three Days To Block 135,000 Songs

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has sent a list of 135,000 copyrighted songs to Napster that the company must block from being swapped over its Internet service by Wednesday, March 14. The list was e-mailed on Friday (March 12), giving Napster three business days to comply (Saturday and Sunday are not considered business days). Napster has confirmed receipt of the list.

Under a court injunction issued March 5, Napster is required to bar the transfer of songs specified within three days of notification by the copyright holders.
