‘Downloaded‘ is the Napster story. How it began, what happened, and how it ended. I found it really well done. Not too much to say, as many of us used the program back in the day – and know the story of it’s demise. One thing I found interesting, is that the co-founders actually met over IRC as Shawn Fanning was working on the project. It’s well put together. At one point (the legal battle) it drags a bit, but it’s overall very well done. I rate it 4/5 — as seen at Hot Docs.
