"It" is a bit ambiguous. The music-trading service, Napster, is under such
an injunction. But that doesn't mean anyone can't listen to music in the
MP3 file format, or use other services that provide music in this format,
or trade music via other similar services. It's only the specific company
whose service is being shut down.
