Best Buy Purchases Napster for $121 Million

Were You a Napster User?

When I heard that Best Buy was buying the flailing Napster for $121 Million, I had to remind myself that yes, Napster has been around in a completely legal incarnation for the past few years. But let's be real — Napster's glory days were 1999-2000, when it popped up as the first really mainstream file-sharing network, only to be slammed down, of course, by angry artists like Dr. Dre and Metallica.

At that time I was just a naive college student with a T1 connection, and in those first few months, I honestly had no idea there would be consequences for all that "free" music. As quickly as everyone started downloading with abandon, everyone stopped once it became a matter of legislation. But still, salad days.

Anyway, tell me: Were you a Napster user? I don't think Lars is listening.
