As you watch the film, you'll be amazed how the world of the Internet turns the recent into the ancient: In a matter of only a few years, a world-changing digital event like Napster has become so last century.
As iffy as the coulda-been premise is, "Downloaded" is still a vigorous retelling of Fanning's and Parker's wildfire achievement and its ethical pitfalls ...
Winter can't get his arms around his material. He seems reluctant to pare anything, and his talking techie heads - Napster founders Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker, along with a host of others - often make the same points, one after another.
An independent Napster may be gone, but its impact reverberates, not least in the continuing threat to intellectual property.

As with Napster itself, the film feels a little dated. Technology has moved on from that time in the late 90s/early 2000s when Napster rocked an industry. It is nonetheless well polished and interesting look at how the industry changed and was forced belatedly to adapt to new customer demands.
Mildly interesting. I do remember Napster. I wasn't a user myself, so that's why it's not overly riveting to me. I think it would be very interesting for someone who used it regularly.
super intresting, you see how much napster has effected the world and still is today. A little BS from the Napster creators about what it was created for. It does slant toward Napter a bit but still so much good info and perspectives.
