Kazaa sues entertainment industry

— 2:34 AM on September 25, 2003

TR Reader NYU Arab pointed me to this story over at MSNBC that details the entertainment industry's latest challenge from the peer-to-peer world. Sharman Networks has filed a lawsuit against the entertainment industry over its use of the Kazaa network to track down and thwart pirates:

Sharman said the companies used Kazaa Lite, an ad-less replica of its software, to get onto the network. The lawsuit also claims efforts to combat piracy on Kazaa violated terms for using the network.
As slim as Sharman's chances may be, it's certainly amusing to see the likes of the RIAA on the other side of a lawsuit for a change.
