When you have limited bandwidth you need to ensure that it is used for what it is purchased for (email access to network based resources etc) and also as Napster moves MP3's you need to ensure that your facilities are not used for infringement on other's intellectualproperty so that you and your organization are not sued by rapacious lawyers unfortunate but there it is here is a short list in ACL format of Napster and other MP3 servers. ! !
