Metallica became one of the first groups filing a suit against violation of its author's rights for audiofiles published on the Internet. In recent days, the group's attorneys sued three universities- Yale, the State University of Indiana, and the State University of California, which used the popular program NAPSTER on their public sites.

Among other plaintiffs are the companies Creeping Death Music and E/M Ventures. The universities are accused of unlawfully using the program, which allows practically uncontrollable exchange of audio files among web users.
