Roxio, which bought Napster for US$5 million last year, is planning an October 9 test launch for the new, legal version of the service called Napster 2.0, according to Napster spokesman Seth Oster. Reuters reports: “Oster said the company also will unveil full details and the official launch date for Napster 2.0 at the service’s beta, or test, launch event in New York City, next Thursday, where over 200 members of the press and industry are invited… In the past Roxio had said Napster 2.0 would launch by Christmas, but sources familiar with the matter said the new Web site will be online and running no later than November.”
