You! Ripped! Us Off! You ripped us off!
Napster are issuing the following warning to users who have downloaded those new Manics tracks, explaining how their access to Napster is now blocked...
Users can regain access within two weeks by sending off a "counter form", available from the Napster Site.
Your Napster account has been blocked pursuant to a Notification of Alleged Infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") filed against you by Sony Music Entertainment UK. The allegation is that material that you have made available through the Napster service contains one or more recordings whose copyrights are owned by Sony Music UK and that your making these available infringes Sony Music UK's copyrights.
The material at issue is from an album by Manic Street Preachers entitled "Know Your Enemy," including the recordings "So Why So Sad" and "Found That Soul", all of which were unreleased at the time we received the DMCA Notification from Sony Music UK.

This content originally from my popular (in the tail end of the nineties) site popex.com. Parts were written by other people, so mainly originally created by me. I shifted this content here when popex finally closed down at the start of the '00s. Hope this ignites memories (if you find it).
