I guess I have to hide my DK mp3's now.[see below] The funniest
commercial I've seen nowadays is the Discover Card's
online financial management tools which features a 1983 band
called Danger Kitty singing "Love Rockets". I think the
song is entirely fictitious, so I was going to put up
"Danger Kitty - Love Rockets (backward masked).mp3"
onto Napster which would mock Ro by including a Paulesque saying
in a Beatles voice. Ah, the pranks that I wish I had
time to do. I bet that link would get sent around to
at least a couple of million emails. Imagine it--Napster
viral marketing spam.

                     (IDG) -- Just weeks after forming an
                     alliance with Napster, German media
                     giant Bertelsmann found itself answering
                     charges from German law-enforcement
                     authorities that the online music
                     exchange enables the spread of
                     right-wing extremist music.

Bertelsmann and Napster said they "severely condemn any abuse" of the
music-exchange platform. "The sharing of neo-Nazi ideas by Napster users to
glorify violence is a violation of Napster's Terms of Use. Bertelsmann's
E-Commerce Group (GmbH) will work closely with the criminal prosecution
authorities to the best of its ability," Andreas Schmidt, chief executive
officer of
the newly-founded Bertelsmann subsidiary overseeing the Napster cooperation,
said in a statement Tuesday.
