This documentary film addresses the evolution of digital media sharing
on the Internet. It features exclusive interviews with software
developers and musicians about controversial filesharing software, and
particularly Napster. It follows Napster from its rise in 1999,
through the swarm of lawsuits that ensued and to its acquisition by
Rhapsody in 2011. Some of those interviewed include Henry Rollins,
Billy Corgan, former record producer and Island Records founder Chris
Blackwell, former Sony Music Chairman Don Ienner, former CEO of the
RIAA Hilary Rosen, Beastie Boys’ Mike D, Nine Inch Nails frontman
Trent Reznor and Noel Gallagher.
