Napster

The current book I’m writing has a working title of: “How P2P File Sharing is Shaping the Internet will be a monograph on P2P file sharing.” I’ve finished a chapter on Napster and another chapter on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

I’m amazed at how successful Napster was, because it didn’t advertise. The lawsuit filed by the RIAA and other music companies helped send Napster to the front pages.
