Napster l.jpg

Napster

  • First “big” file Sharing community

  • Started on 1999

  • Record Industry closed it with a series of trials in 2003

  • No legal option until ~2003 (iTunes, Rhapsody).


Legal options after napster l.jpg

Legal Options after Napster

  • Problems with DRM

  • Many limitations make no sense for people who are used to own physical copies (like limiting the number of players, etc.).


New p2p sites developed l.jpg

New P2P sites developed

  • The networks avoided holding information (became hard to sue).

  • They became more popular, and more and more things were available

  • Kazaa, LimeWire, BearShare (p2p).

  • Also, networks to download bigger files on BitTorrent.


Mp3 players l.jpg

Mp3 players

  • In the market since 1999

  • No legal music download site (at least not one big) until 2003.

  • Increased the number of illegal downloads greatly (it was not only free, but also convenient).

New mp3 players

  • Can hold up to 160GB (iPod classic)

  • Or around 40,000 songs

  • At 99 cents a song

  • $39,600 in music

  • The device is $349.00

  • Warranty for a year, (many don’t last more than two)

  • DRM “marries” you to that player

RIAA

  • “Sue them all”

  • They all should pay (including sites like youtube).

  • The music industry is attacking every possible site

  • Their tactics still don’t scare people off sharing networks (many of them are illegal too).


Conclusion l.jpg

Conclusion

  • A big change is needed.

  • At the price of music, it is hard to believe any one will fill any high capacity device legally.

  • DRM and RIAA scare tactics need to be changed

  • A legal option that doesn’t take a year salary to fill an iPod is required if we expect to stop illegal downloads.
