As part of an ongoing effort to provide alternatives to digital-music piracy on college campuses, Napster has created new relationships with six schools.

As part of an ongoing effort to provide alternatives to digital-music piracy on college campuses, Napster has created new relationships with six schools.

Cornell University, George Washington University, Middlebury College, University of Miami, University of Southern California and Wright State University (Ohio) will work with Napster starting this fall to create programs providing their students access to the digital-music service, which offers both subscriptions and per-track downloads. The service also features commercial-free radio stations and access to Billboard chart information.

The schools join Penn State University and University of Rochester as Napster affiliates.

Campus Action Network, a music industry initiative dedicated to introducing legitimate services at colleges, played a major role in setting up the new partnerships.
