Sonic Solutions to Acquire Roxio’s Consumer Software

Here’s a bit of an interesting deal.  Sonic has acquired Roxio’s software division.  This would include Easy CD/DVD Creator or Easy Media Creator, whatever theyare calling it now.  Roxio now plans to focus on Napster, and their corporate name is now Napster too.  Now traded under NAPS on the NASDAQ.


This seems like a good place for Roxio to go.  IMO Nero was killing Roxio’s burning software, just behind Roxio’s burning software was Sonic’s RecordNow.  Every HP product you purchase now comes with RecordNow, I remember a few years ago it was Easy CD Creator.
