Napster was a music exchange program
Napster was the first globally used peer-to-peer music part service and was sourced from a few students. by Napster, the MP3 file format became popular because it was very simple to share music from others. Napster had a simple interface and after installation went looking for MP3 files, this list was sent to a central server. After that you can search yourself, in the large list of all users and if you had found a music file a connection was made with the other computer. With Napster you could get music for free, and many record companies didn't agree. Metallica was the first band to issue a lawsuit in 1999. Since 2004, Napster has become a payment service.
