UTG has been bringing you a fair amount of trailers recently, but this one is more poignant to you and the rest of our audience than ever. Today we would love to share with you the trailer for the documentary Downloaded. This documentary tells the story of infamous illegal file sharing website Napster, and the impact that the site has had on the music industry. This film is going to be a must-watch for basically any music fan ever, as the way you consume music has been permanently changed because of this one website. And for our younger readers: Napster is the precursor to websites such as Limewire, Kazaa or Torrents.
The film is directed by Alex Winter, and it is slated for a 2013 release.
You can check out the trailer after the break, but let’s start a conversation in the comments: what do you think of illegal downloading and online piracy? Does it affect the music industry as much as they say?
