A dozen years ago, in June 1999, the web was in fever. The Internet saw a new type of online service, which would take the digital world by storm. As a result, this new service changed forever the way Internet users perceived sharing of digital material.

Today we take the BitTorrent and other peer-to-peer services for granted, and few of us remember how it started. Meanwhile, the story was no less exiting than Facebook’s or Google’s stories. Napster was the name of a P2P file-sharing service, which was responsible for generating too much controversy and making the entertainment industry crack up. Now it will have its own story described in documentary form. The movie was directed by Alex Winter, Bill from the Bill and Ted films.

The technology used by a new service called Napster enabled users to share their music files among themselves. Such scheme circumvented the rules set by the entertainment industry, which ultimately caused a number of copyright violation lawsuits. This was the end of the legendary service.

Now the documentary about this network will follow the short life of the service developed and introduced by a college student named Shawn Fanning more than twelve years ago. The movie director, Alex Winter, has recently said in his interview that the rise and fall of Napster lead to the birth of P2P file-sharing technology developed by Fanning as a college student. Later people switched from sharing music files to films and software, and the technology in question made possible almost everything in the today’s web – starting from Julian Assange and his WikiLeaks to such devices as iPod and networks like Facebook.

Alex Winter admitted that the story of Napster was undeniably a fascinating one. He believes that there were few, if any, such human stories where an underage kid invented a peer-to-peer file-sharing system. Moreover, he managed to bring it to the world only six months later.

The movie critics believe that the Napster documentary will be well received by the public, particularly if you take into account the success of the movie titled The Social Network, where Facebook’s story was told. Despite of the differences in budget and genres, the essence of the work will be the same, and Internet users will likely be interested in the history of the web. The only question is in which network the movie will be released first.
