In the Internet economy, a value has been placed on
having access to people & building up a community. Given
Napsters equation of a month or two ago, $800M/35M = about
$22 per person of worth for every user. Now this "worth"
doesn't live in a vacuum; if Napster started spamming their
users and abusing their privacy, then I am sure this
number would get down around the same worth as banner advertising
or even spam mail.
What other tech craze has been able to have so many people
buy into it in such short amount of time? Independent of
any P2P serious business benefits, there's a benefit to
having access to that many "eyeballs".
Hell, Napster could have made a couple of million a month
selling t-shirts alone. That's pretty serious business for
