Arrests[edit]

Shouldn't there be more on here about all of the teenagers and young people that were arrested for "pirating" music? There were quite a few arrests that were well-advertised by the authorities at the time, to try and deter others from downloading the music, and movies and other forms of media that you could obtain on the website... Shouldn't that be mentioned here with some detail? Stevenmitchell (talk) 16:14, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

But were there? Or was that part of the media campaign against Napster? I can not recall one credible story and no one ever was convicted (a few people were scared into settling instead of lengthy trials, prison terms, and millions in damages but thats not the same thing.
