Metallica ID's Napster users

Heavy metal band Metallica says it has identified more than 335,000 individuals who allegedly shared its songs online in violation of copyright laws.

Attorneys for the group say the names were gathered by an online consulting firm that monitored the service of music-swapping company Napster this past weekend, and plan to ask the company to block all of those individuals from its service.

Both Metallica and rap artist Dr. Dre have filed lawsuits against Napster, which allows hundreds of thousands of computer users to open their hard drives and share music files online.
