It appears that the "new" Napster's copy protection scheme isn't so hot after all. A group of users have already cracked the scheme using Winamp:

A spokeswoman for Napster said that such endeavours were nothing new and the company was not too concerned.

"The DRM (digital rights management) is intact. Basically, people are just recording off a sound card. This is nothing new and people could do this with any legitimate service if they want to use a sound card," she said.

"This kind of attack has been around for a long time and it's just because of our higher profile that it has sparked such interest," she said.
Actually, it's because companies insist on trying to cripple products and piss off consumers.
