Hank Barry, interim CEO of the beleagured music sharing company Napster, issued a statement regarding continued difficulties in putting the service back online:
This morning, we appeared before the District Court with evidence that our new file identification architecture has achieved over 99% effectiveness in identifying and screening out noticed works. We told the judge that we were ready to resume file transfers. The Judge issued an order prohibiting Napster from enabling file transfers unless Napster reaches 100% success.
