Time now for our regular Hollywood update from Rebecca Keegan of the L.A. Times. She's in Austin today, for the annual South by Southwest festival.

South by Southwest is known for music and technology, but it's also become an important stop on the film festival circuit. Interestingly, one of the films being shown is about music and technology. It's a documentary called "Downloaded," and it's about the rise and fall of Napster. It's directed by Alex Winter, who is probably best know as Bill, from the film "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure."
