INTERNET BUSINESS NEWS-(C)1995-2004 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Students attending the University of Rochester in New York, USA, are to be given a free subscription to the Napster online music subscription service in a bid to reduce piracy levels.

In total, 3,700 students that are currently living in halls of residence will benefit from the free subscriptions with the university paying the cost of the initiative. This will enable the students to stream and download an unlimited amount of music from the web site featuring 500,000 tracks.

Also as part of the agreement Napster will work with music students at the university to develop ways of distributing their music over the Napster network.

Permanent downloads which the students can burn onto a CD or transfer to mobile devices will be priced at USD0.99.
