Before iTunes, Spotify, Netflix, there was Napster

DOWNLOADED tells the unlikely story of the file-sharing service Napster. While still in college, Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker created the service as a means to share music with friends and acquaintances online. However, Napster's popularity quickly grew far beyond what anyone had imagined – least of all the music industry. And while industry lawyers were able to put Napster out of business, they could not stop the revolution it had sparked – a revolution which would turn the world of western entertainment upside down.
