Morpheus, available from MusicCity Networks, Inc. is a distributed file-sharing network based on the KaZaA code base. (Morpheus and the KaZaA Media Desktop client provide uniquely-branded interfaces to different breeds of what amounts to the same underlying network.) Like Napster, Morpheus is a closed system that requires the use of a centralized user registration and logon system. However, Morpheus differs from Napster in that it does not maintain a central content index or subject its network to content filtering. The Windows-based Morpheus client is available for download and contains an embedded version of Microsoft's Windows Media Player.
