The guys from Offspring, who recently joined the Napster bandwagon and started selling tee-shirts and baseball caps with the infamous company's logotype on the group's site, have found themselves in a paradoxical situation in the last several days. The group received a letter from the above-mentioned company demanding that they stop selling products bearing the Napster logotype, on grounds that it is illegal. Despite this, what concerns unlawful actions, or in particular copyright infringement, the company is under fire from a whole flock of superstars- from Metallica to Dr. Dre. There was no reaction from Offspring. The products continue to be sold as if nothing had happened. Now everyone is waiting to see whether Napster will take any legal actions against the group. The catch in the situation (for Napster, at least) is that Offspring happens to be one of the only groups supporting the Napster project, and to attack its friends is a little illogical┘
Apparently, in order to win over Napster and completely neutralize them as friends who have somewhat lost their footing, Offspring plans to publish a few exclusive tracks that no one has ever heard before on the Internet in MP3 format.
