And if you’re in your early thirties, or older, you probably didn’t know that Napster still existed. But of course, it is nothing like it was back in 1999.
Back then, Napster was wild and it blew the horns of change for the music industry. With the Internet opening up to the world in the nineties, it was bound to happen. Music was just another industry that was getting completely disrupted by the dot com craziness.
