There is no “The Social Network” or “Jobs“ for early tech entrepreneurs who didn’t make it. Coral Gables lawyer Ivan Parron was one such entrepreneur, founding one of the first online music distribution sites — the first legal one, he said — in 1998, only to have his IPO squashed by the dot-com crash and a much better-known, yet less legitimate, website: Napster.

This is the story of how Parron took that loss on the chin and went on to become a leading force in sports and entertainment law.
