Copyright police raid KaZaa By Frank Barnako, CBS.MarketWatch.com Last Update: 9:57 AM ET Feb 6, 2004 WASHINGTON (CBS.MW) -- Search warrants allowing the seizure of material violating Australia's copyright laws were executed Friday at the offices of Sharman Networks, Brilliant Digital Entertainment, several universities, and the homes of company officers. Raids by the Music Industry Piracy Investigations were also conducted against four Internet service providers including Telstra, the country's largest access seller. The orders were directed against KaZaa, the general manager of MIPI told ZDNet Australia. "This is not about individuals, this is about the big fish," said Michael Speck. "This is a signal that Internet music piracy is finished in Australia." Sharman Networks, which owns KaZaa, said in a statement, "This is a knee-jerk reaction by the recording industry to discredit Sharman and KaZaa, following a number of decisions around the world that have ruled against the entertainment industry's agenda to stamp out peer-to-peer technology."
