Downloaded Trailer. Alex Winter‘s Downloaded (2012) movie trailer about Napster stars John Fanning, Shawn Fanning, Sean Parker, Lars Ulrich, and Henry Rollins. Downloaded‘s plot synopsis: “The rise and fall of Napster and the birth of peer-to-peer file-sharing technology created by Shawn Fanning when he was a college student, changed music to movies, and made possible everything from Julian Assange, WikiLeaks to the iPod and Facebook.
It became an expression of youth revolt, and contributed to a complete shift in how information, media and governments work. And it is a fascinating human story, where this 18-year-old kid invents a peer-to-peer file-sharing system, and brings it to the world six months later.”
For those that do not remember:
Napster is a name given to two music-focused online services. It was originally founded as a pioneering peer-to-peer file sharing Internet service that emphasized sharing audio files, typically music, encoded in MP3 format. The original company ran into legal difficulties over copyright infringement…The service operated between June 1999 and July 2001.
I was in college during this time period and actually used the Napster. Everybody was using it. You didn’t buy a computer without a CD writer drive installed. Napster changed the music industry and morphed it into what it is now.
