The new software will continually search Napster for users infringing on’s copyrights. Once identified, the user will receive an e-mail from notifying him/her of the infringement. Then, the user will have a 24-hour grace period to stop distributing the track. If the user continues distributing the track, will request that Napster block the person’s account.

“Napster’s claim that it can’t remove tracks from its database is disingenuous and we believe their stance will work to the detriment of their own users,” said President/CEO Gene Hoffman. “It seems Napster would rather shut down user accounts than to deal directly with the problem of illegally distributed files. Our proposed solution deals with illegal activity only, allowing the exchange of legitimate files. However, remains open to the possibility of working with Napster to implement a more reasonable approach to solving the problem.”
