Napster only against 'cash'
After the alliance with BMG, users of the Napster music exchange platform will be asked to pay for it in the future. While one is certain with the new cooperation partner Bertelsmann that the majority of users are willing to pay for music from the Internet, there are also opposing opinions from other expert circles.
After that it is assumed that surfers will continue to find ways and means to exchange music files for free. If you go by the survey results, 70% of Napster users are willing to spend an amount of up to 15 dollars a month on their hobby, but only a monthly fee of 5 dollars is under discussion, but this has not yet been confirmed. Meanwhile, opinions differ in forums and newsgroups, while some see themselves as victims of a clever marketing strategy, others see it as fair when artists and writers get their income in this way. Even if Napster can implement this concept, the last word about free music data exchange on the Internet has not yet been spoken. Already today there are other programs that do something similar to Napster, and after the restructuring there will certainly be clones in the network that will fill the position.
