Wasn't it always your dream to have all your music free? Napster was the answer. (But not for long.) Napster is, as we learn in the WikiPedia, an online music service which was originally a file sharing service created by Shawn Fanning. Napster was the first widely-used peer-to-peer music sharing service, and it made a major impact on how people, especially college students, used the Internet. Its technology allowed music fans to easily share MP3 format song files with each other, thus leading to the music industry's accusations of massive copyright violations. The service was named Napster after Fanning's nickname. However, Napster has been forced to become commercial. So the question is: is there life after napster? Well, there is at least open source!
