Some people seem to think their chances of avoiding getting in trouble are better if they keep a low profile on Napster. This may very well be true. You can spot these folks pretty easily by watching their behavior. Most make quick hit and run trips onto the network. They download a few files they want and then disconnect, never spending more than an hour at most connected to the Napster servers.
The reasoning seems to be that the less time a user spends connected to the network, the lower the chances are that someone will notice what they're doing.
This may be true. But don't count on it.

by bands who have expressly granted Napster permission
to distribute their material - such as the artists participating in the
Napster new artists program.
