Title: Where are they now?
WarXchild Says

After giving the industry big headaches, icons of file sharing have turned new leaf or gone on to disrupt other businesses.
The mere mention of the early file-sharing icons -- Shawn Fanning, Niklas Zennstr?m or Wayne Rosso -- used to be enough to send top recording industry executives and artists into a tirade.

But times have changed in just a matter of years. All three have moved on. Two of them head companies that offer solutions to online piracy, while one has gone on to disrupt another industry.


Here?s a look at the careers of these three, then and now.

Shawn Fanning

-- Then: As a Northwestern University student in 1999, Fanning wanted an easier way to find and download MP3 music files, which were a growing underground hit among college students around the country. So he wrote an online file-sharing program and named it after his own nickname, "The Napster."

Napster quickly grew into a worldwide phenomenon used by millions of people who were swapping as many as 3 billion songs per month. Fanning, who later moved to the Bay Area to help found Napster Inc., became an enemy of the major record labels and artists such as Metallica.

A string of lawsuits forced the company to shut down its file-sharing service and eventually close.

-- Now: Fanning, 24, is co-founder and chief strategy officer of Snocap Inc., a San Francisco startup that provides the record industry with digital music licensing and copyright management services for use on peer-to-peer networks.

Snocap has already signed as clients the two biggest labels, Universal and Sony BMG, and many independent labels.
