A student-owned college press isn’t worried that its new Napster-foiling software won’t generate any revenues. The software, which turns music titles into pig Latin to slip through Napster’s new filtering technology, was created in four days. James Chillcott of PulseNewMedia says their tool can be used to disguise any type of file in transit. Even if Napster is sunk by U.S. courts, similar programs will benefit from the privacy afforded by the Encoder.
