NAPSTER ANNOUNCEMENT--Provost Charles Phelps takes questions from local media on February 5 regarding the new agreement between the University and the online digital music distributor Napster. Rochester is the first private university in the nation to sign a digital music agreement, giving students free access to Napster's Premium Service as a way to discourage illegal peer-to-peer file sharing.

On Monday, February 16, Phelps will join Cary Sherman, president of the Recording Industry Association of America; Marjorie Hodges Shaw, special advisor to the chief information officer at the University; and several student representatives in a panel discussion titled "What Part of 'Jailhouse Rock' Don't You Understand? Defining Rights in the Digital Age." President Jackson will moderate the discussion in Hoyt Hall at 8 p.m. (See related story.)
