Sean Parker, co-creator of Napster – known to have been played by Justin Timberlake in The Social Network – is now a member of the service.

The company, of Swedish origin, began its expansion in Europe and it took two years to enter the United States. While the explanation for this delay is recognized that negotiations with the music labels have delayed, there is another conspiracy theory something would frenandolos.

“There were some indications that this could be happening. You hear things, people send you e-mails, “Parker said in an interview at the conference AllThingsD D10 . “There was a sense that Apple felt threatened by what they were doing,” said Parker.
