Though Napster's revenue numbers look good, it's important to note that the company is still showing a net loss for the fiscal year. Total net loss for the year, before income taxes, was $59 million. That's an improvement compared to fiscal 2005, which had a net loss of $67 million, before income taxes, but the company still has some work to do.
