The age old debate of how do musicians get paid for their work.
"Downloaded" is the story of Shawn Fanning and his revolutionary creation - Napster. This one has a star-studded cast and at a glance could be either very interesting or very boring. The plus side is that you can get everyone's side to the debate.
When I finished watching this, I was a little disappointed. Felt like they hadn't focused on the impact that this caused throughout the industry in quite the right light. Some might disagree.
I saw this one and several other music-themed docs at the Canadian International Doc Festival "Hot Docs". Wayne from Metalworks Studios mentioned his first impressions on a few I couldn't find the time to see: http://metalworksstudios.com/news/blog/item/81-music-documentaries
