The Nature of Napster

Napster changed the way people viewed the music trade and represented various things for different people connected to music in many forms. At first, those who heard the idea of the platform through an internet chatroom from inventor Shawn Fanning didn’t believe that anyone would want to even engage in such an absurd idea. However, these people were soon proven incorrect by the millions of users who were part of the Napster community at its peak. Napster rose to such prominence that its newfound influence touched those from all corners of the music industry.
