This film tells the story of Napster and its co-founders, Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker; the legal battle against it by the recording industry; the failure of the music industry and Napster to reach any agreement; and the eventual fall of Napster. It presents the music industry as foolish for failing to realize that piracy could not ultimately be contained, and for failing to see the opportunities technology presented. It presents the idealism and excitement that surrounded the internet in the 1990s, treating Napster as the embodiment of those ideals. It argues that these ideals continue to thrive and will ultimately triumph.
