Its software recognizes songs on CDs and then tells applications such as AOL Time Warner's Winamp what the names of songs and discs are. Song-swapping service Napster is using Gracenote's database to help identify songs and block them at the request of music labels. A Roxio representative said the company had not seen the lawsuit and did not comment on pending legal matters..."
