Synopsis

Director Alex Winter explores the technological paradigm shift that created the proliferation of online media sharing, and the role that companies like Napster played in making file swapping as simple as the click of a mouse. As music-industry insiders such as onetime Sony Music chairman Don Ienner, Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, and former Recording Industry Association of America CEO Hilary Rosen speak at length about the effects that file sharing has had on their increasingly obsolete business model, prolific recording artists Henry Rollins, Noel Gallagher, Mike D, and others discuss the impact that game-changing technological innovations have had on the performers who rely on their art to make a living. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
