Robert H. "Rob" Reid is an American author and entrepreneur. He is best known for his bestselling book Architects of the Web and as the founder of Inc., which created the Rhapsody digital music service.

After Silicon Graphics, Reid became a venture capitalist. He continued to write as well, for places such as Wired, including a 1997 cover story about online video. Reid is the author of three books, Architects of the Web, a book about the Silicon Valley, Year Zero, a work of fiction, and Year One, a book about Harvard Business School. He wrote his first book, Year One, which was an examination of student life, as a student at Harvard. The paperback was released by Avon the following year, in the wake of positive reviews from Business Week and others. His second book, Architects of the Web, was written 1997, and chronicled the rise of the Internet as a commercial medium as well as then rising entrepreneurs like Marc Andreessen of Netscape, Jerry Yang of Yahoo and Rob Glaser of RealNetworks. It was positively reviewed and later released in paperback in 1999. In July 2012, Random House/Del Rey published Reid’s third book, Year Zero, a work of science fiction. The plot revolves around alien cultures coming into contact with Earth music. The resulting fines and penalties from copyright infringement have bankrupted the whole universe. Humans suddenly own everything—and the aliens are not amused.

Reid was the sole founder of the online music company, where he served as CEO and as Executive Chairman. In 2001, launched Rhapsody, an unlimited music streaming service for $9.99 a month—the first licensed service of its kind. In 2003, the company was acquired by RealNetworks, where Reid remained as a company vice president. Later, MTV purchased Rhapsody from RealNetworks for $230 million. In March 1999 Reid became the founding outside board member of IGN Entertainment. IGN went public in March of the following year and was acquired by News Corp in September 2005 for $650MM. In March 2012 Reid gave a TED talk called the "The $8 billion iPod." He explained his idea of "copyright math." The talk satirized the information provided by entertainment lobbyists and lawyers to indicate losses accrued by the entertainment industry due to "copyright theft."
