Do you remember Napster? We’re still seeing the impact of the original peer-to-peer file (read: music) sharing program today. According to Paul Gardner-Stephen, the power of music labels has diminished dramatically as a result of these kinds of activities. In fact, has been re-distributed to the people.

“The democratisation of online music is one example where the internet has eroded the monopoly power of music labels returning some portion of that power to the general public, without bankrupting those enterprises.”
