Do y’all remember downloading Kid Rock, Eminem, and Nsync songs on Napster 10 years ago!?
I can’t believe it has been 10 years, but apparently Napster opened its illegal doors for P2P sharing in June 1999.
I remember spending hours downloading music from Napster and burning on my new, state-of-the-art CD-R drive. No one else had a CD-R drive at the time, so I would burn CDs for people and bring them to school.
Apparently Napster is on the brink of falling apart right now. They are having major issues just staying in business, let alone appeasing major record labels. Check out this story regarding what Napster is up to these days.
