Chairman of Swedish pop composers group defends Napster

In today's Metro Stockholm, Roger A. Wallis, the chairman of SKAP (Association of Swedish Pop Music Composers) defends Napster, the Website that the recording industry wants to outlaw since it's being used to download music illegally from the Internet.

Wallis was interviewed by Computer Sweden magazine. He says in the interview that Napster fills an important function, since it gives people an opportunity to find new music. "If people are interested enough, they will pay for concerts and physical stuff," he claims.

Both Per and Marie are members of SKAP.
