P2P service Kazaa shackled by court ruling

July 29th, 2006 · No Comments

The MPAA and RIAA have won another legal victory over the file sharing community. Kazaa has agreed to pay 115 million dollars in fines and has vowed to install filtering software designed to prevent the sharing of copyrighted material by its users.
The Motion Picture Association of America declared the Australian court ruling “another milestone in the progress the content and online communities have made in coming together.” The Recording Industry Association of America added: “The winners are fans, artists and labels and everyone else involved in making music and our partners in the technology community.”
Kazaa’s owner, Sharman Networks, responded with the following statement: “It has been our long standing goal for Kazaa to play a significant role in the growing market for licensed online distribution and authorized exchange of copyright content using peer-to-peer technology.”
