It did not achieve pervasive popularity among the general populace, however, until the development of a user-friendly freeware software application called “Napster” hit the Internet in 1999. NAPSTER – A REVOLUTIONARY APPLICATION Napster - in its original version - was a small peer-to-peer (P2P) file exchange application that transformed users’ computers into de facto file servers, enabling them to upload to and download from millions of other MP3 enthusiasts around the world. It was the software – “the killer app” that revolutionized the worlds of both producers and consumers of music Digital Audio, Intellectual Property, and Law 19 (Petersen, 2000).
Luckenbill and Miller’s paper was published in 1998, a year in which the MP3 phenomenon was still relatively incipient. It can be argued that digital music has had much greater ramifications than the aforementioned devices for the distribution of creative works due to its global scope and availability on the Internet. Historically, government agencies paid attention to traditional types of property crimes but ignored those of the intellectual variety (Luckenbill & Miller, 1998). By the turn of the 20th century, though, supporters of rights restricting the copying and dissemination of creative works had successfully compelled the state to propose and enact legislation in line with their position after developing strong political and economic ties (Bettig, 1996).
It is true that some MP3s available on Napster were legal files, supported by the artist or band. The vast majority, however, were illegal files of copyrighted works by a sizable number of commercial artists ranging from the latest pop track by Madonna, to the country sounds of the Dixie Chicks, to the hardcore rap songs of Snoop Dogg, to the old-school classic rock of ZZ Top. The crux of the problem was that the owners of the copyright (usually held jointly by the artist and the record company) were denied compensation due to them through unauthorized downloads of their music via the software.
