Companies such as Napster have
found that it's easy to build Websites
that offer free songs, books and

sites into profitable businesses has
been nearly impossible in the face of
legal challenges from the industry.

respects artists' rights," said Thomas
Middelhoff, Bertelsmann's chairman
and chief executive officer at a joint
news conference yesterday with Nap-
ster officials. "That fits our strategy
perfectly."
Under terms of the alliance, Betels-
mann will invest an undisclosed sum
in Napster and withdraw from the
industrywide infringement suit once
the service has reconfigured itself to
pay royalties to Bertelsmann's artists
through pay-for-play subscriptions
fees.
Bertelsmann will offer Napster
every song in its digital music library,
and Napster will charge about 54.95 a
month for access to the songs. Offi-
cials at Germany-based Bertelsmann
said it will ensure that royalty pay-
NADER
Continued from Page 1
"You can't spoil a political system
that is spoiled to the core," Nader said
in a press conference before the rally.
- Nader expressed his opposition to
the World Trade Organization and
North American Free Trade Agree-
ment and pointed what he said was yet
another similarity between Bushc and
Gore. Nader said these organizations
harm American labor by moving their
factories to developing nations, in
effect pushing down wages. Not only
are Americans disadvantaged but
human rights violations are being
committed in these foreign nations,
Nader said.
Nader described himself as a cham-
pion of unionized labor despite the
fact that many labor unions have
endorsed Gore. He called for the
repeal of the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947,
which put limitations on collective
bargaining on the side of labor.
"Every union could vote for Al
Gore and you won't slow me down
one bit," said Nader, who supports a
living wage. He said one out of three
Americans make less than Sl0 per
hour, leaving 47 million without a liv-
ing wage and 46 million without
health care.
"If this happens in a booming econ-
omy, I wonder what's going to happen
HOUSE
Continued from Page 1
Democrat Curtis Bell and Libertarian
S. Sterling Nunnemaker are vying for
Perricone's old spot, the House speak-
er said he is "quite certain" George
will retain the 61st District seat for the
Republicans.
Perricone was sent back to Lansingj
for his third term with 68 percent of
the vote.
But much of the election results willI
depend on voter turnout, Perricone said.
The 1998 election had a historically
low turnout for Republicans, Perricone
said.
"We don't see any of those indicators
this time around," he said.

ments are channeled to labels, song-
writers and artists.
News of the deal was hailed by
some Web entrepreneurs as long
overdue recognition that the Internet
will be a money-making force for
major labels once they get over fears
that online piracy will destroy their
industry.
"It's the shot heard round the
world," said David Pakman of
Myplay.com, a music subscription
service. "This is a major label prov-
ing that the lights are on, that 37 mil-
lion consumers can't be wrong and
that this is an alternative distribution
method that must be built on."
The Napster-Bertelsmann strategy,
however, is risky for both partners, say
music analysts and competitors.
whenite econoty goes into reces-
sion,' Nader said.
Nader also emphasized the need for
consumer protection from big corpora-
tions and the people's right to privacy
against genetic profiling, financial and
health information.
The Green Party candidate said he
supports environmental protections,
reforming the criminal justice system
and collecting payments from radio
and television companies for use of
public air waves. He also proposed to
collect funds for the use of public
lands.
Nader also spoke about the situation
in the Middle East. lie said he believes
Iraqi sanctions should be lifted and
that the United States should not take
sides in the conflict between Palestini-
ans and Israelis.
"If the U.S. is to be an honest bro-
ker, it cannot take sides in the con-
flict," Nader said.
Addressing talk that the next chief
executive could nominate betsween
two and four Supreme Court justices,
Nader said a Bush presidency does
not mean the court will become more
conservative than under Gore. ie said
the Democrats approved the nomina-
tions of Justice Antonin Scalia and
Clarence Thomas, who are considered
to be sonic of the most conservative
currently serving on the Supreme
Court.

people's minds, especially tho. c
families ... We experimented with Fot
enforcing these rules and things~tend-
ed to get out of hand. Strictncs is
absolutely necessary because tiwngs:
can get way out of controlne said
The employee added it is sometimes
difficult to enforce the rules, spf.ifi-
cally the restriction on baggy pants.
One arcade patron said most sfit-
dents have recognized the dress;qcsdc
and abide by it because the emploees
at Pinball Pete's were lenient abo sthe
pants code.
"The baggy pants they let slide,:cut
the hats, sometimes they make you
turn them straight or backwards.'YOu
can't wear bandannas or any:ga g
paraphernalia at all," said the patron,
who goes by the name "Shotgun."
While gang-related clothing may
not seem a problem for the University
or the campus, Department of Public
. Safety spokeswoman Diane Brown
said there have been minor gangrelat-
ed incidents in the past. "We have htd
some graffiti periodically and some
minor incidents over the years." -
She added that graffiti incidents
occur less than once per semester.;
But, Brown said, DPS officers do
receive periodic training in how"to
spot gang-related items similart'6
those prohibited from Pinball Pete?.
Finn Jensen, the manager of Pinball
Pete's, said the rule outlawing bandan-
nas was formed specifically to guard
against gangs.
"The bandanna rule is definitely try-
ing to deter gang behavior,"he sad.,
He added that the rules are hcl hg
to make it easier for the game ha to
attract families with a largerlnd
brighter facility and more gama.for
young children."
"The days of the dirty, old arcade
are gone," Jensen said.
While the dress code is unique in
the way that it is deterring gant
behavior, Doug Lewis, director s+f
the University's Student Legal Set'-
vices, said it is no different from the
dress code of jackets and ties an
many formal restaurants.
"You cannot disesiminate against a
person based upon age, sex, race or
gender," Lewis said. "These are pro-
tected classes under the Constitution."
He added that clothing is not a pro-
tected class and therefore it is notillu-
gal to enact a dress code it stores or
arcades.
"The legality depends on howitis
actually enforced," Lewis said. "On'fs
face it doesn't appear to be uncoostlid-
tional, but in practice you have to wat
and see what happens"
