Ars Technica has a reasonable editorial theorizing on why record labels aren’t going for the Napster settlement offer. Of course, Occam’s Razor dictates that we simply assume that the RIAA isn’t going for it because they either don’t believe that Napster isn’t good for the money, or that they know a billion dollars over five years isn’t enough money to make them happy. I think that they see Napster as complicating their world unnecessarily, and just want it dead.
