Robert Siegel talks with Bruce Schneier, author of Secrets and Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World. They discuss ways Napster might try to prevent users from making illegal copies of music available through its site. He says whatever technology Napster uses will be hackable, and once it's hacked, a program for getting around the technology could be made available almost instantly through the Internet.
