Subject: DOJ goes to bat for napster
David Boies, the lawyer recently seen cleaning Microsoft's clock for
the DOJ is going to bat for Napster <http://www.napster.com/>, and he
is bringing a curious bit of law with him. It seems that if one uses
enforcement of a copyright in an anti-competitive fashion -- which
Napster says it has documents proving members of the RIAA cartel have
done -- you lose your ability to legally enforce that copyright .

You can read the actual brief in pdf format
<http://dl.napster.com/opposition.pdf> as well. Boies lays out all his
arguments on page three...
