AOL MP3 Search Service
Music & MP3
8/9/2000; 6:32:51 PM Yesterday, Scripting News broke the story that WinAmp, owned by AOL, had a hosting service that allowed you to upload your own MP3s and allow others to download them, which in fact was far worse then Napster is. This is especially interesting in light of the fact AOL is aiming to aquire Time-Warner, one of the big members of the RIAA, Napster's mortal foe.
Well, for one reason or another AOL/WinAmp is pulling the service, due to their inability to keep copyrighted material off of the server. One could speculate the reporters nosing around the story scared them, but it would just be speculation.
