Downloaded. Or how the music industry changed forever.

In past post we have been able to chat with  emerging artists about where the industry is headed. One common topic when trying to decipher future paths has been piracy; what are it´s real effects on the industry? Can it be fought?

Interestingly enough, earlier this week the trailer for VH1´s future documentary Downloaded: The Digital Revolution by Alex Winter was released. Under its subtitle “Napster: The Music. The Battle. The Revolution” it will take a look at Napster´s history and how Shawn Fanning and Shawn Parker revolutionized the music industry, instigating a file-sharing phenomenon that has grown to a point that it has become common nature.

The film premiered at this year´s SXSW, but has not yet been released. Check out the trailer below:
