(June 26, 2001) -- A federal appeals court in Los Angeles on Monday denied music-swapping site Napster's request to challenge the injunction brought against the service by the recording industry.

Jonathan Schwartz, general counsel for Napster, said in a statement Monday: "While we are disappointed that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit declined to reconsider its February 2001 decision, ... [we] will now review our legal options going forward.

"We will continue to comply with the outstanding injunction," he said. "With the launch of the new membership service later this summer, we believe we will put to rest many of the outstanding legal issues." -- Adrienne Mand
