"Time is running out for music-swapping company Napster, which faces the possibility of a court order effectively shutting its service down as soon as Friday. Attorneys for Napster and the record industry meet again in a San Francisco courtroom Friday at 10 a.m. PST, as federal Judge Marilyn Hall Patel gets ready to issue a preliminary injunction that will sharply limit the company's actions.

Patel will be working from an appeals court decision late last month that was sharply critical of Napster's activities but said she had gone too far in her last decision. This time around, the appellate judges said, she must tell Napster to block trades only of those specific songs that have been identified by the record labels as copyrighted." </font>
