Napster will live on in the UK

No Rhapsody name change here

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Update Napster has won itself a reprieve - at least in the UK and Germany.

The name will continue in these two European territories, a local spokesman insisted today.

"There is no intention to close Napster in either Germany or the UK," he told Reg Hardware.

Last week, Rhapsody, which in November bought Napster from US retail giant Best Buy, said it was folding Napster into its own music subscription service, seemingly to increase the Rhapsody subscriber base.

That wouldn't work over here - Rhapsody has little or no presence in the UK operation. More to the point, its deal with Best Buy doesn't include Napster UK, which remains a part of Best Buy. ®
