Nice to know this copyright case has the greenlight to move forward.
I hope they win
This is getting out of control. Damn those greedy music executives!
I don't like illegal music downloads but I dislike even more the greedy music industry's heads for the way they have been handling things in the past.
So, I find this amusing ^_^
1 thumb up
law suits all around.
My thoughts exactly. Kazaa's ethics are questionable at best, but the RIAA's approach at stopping them is equally shady.
wonder what they do against all other sharing programs: limewire, bittorrent, hotline, carracho,... there are just too many of them. illegal DL will always stay alive, unless they make it legal
This will be an interesting suit to follow, maybe it'll be on Court TV.
I'm curious to see what grounds they'll be using.
unless legit people stop buying as well, and the source runs out....
Kazaa is source of millions (maybe billions) of copyright infringments every day.
This is the second time they are suing someone for violating thier own copyrights.
Kazaa is crap anyway, it has so much spyware with it. And they want you to pay to get rid of the spyware.
They are also trying to sue people like Kazaa Lite, because Kazaa Lite provides a version of Kazaa without spyware for free. I hope Kazaa looses because of their attitude.
I didn't think Kazza ran on Macs.
yeah it does run on OS X, it's a pay version however. Good! I don't care give them a taste of there own law suits.
What the HELL are you talking about?
There is no OFFICAL KaZaA Client for mac.
Oh my god, MIS-INFORMATION!
Stop spreading lies!
There are programs that access FastTrack (KaZaA network) like Poisoned... but its obviously not the "offical" KaZaA client... becuse then Sherman would have to own the rights and put spyware in it...
Sherman network killed KaZaA lite because it was a better product then they had... and it was free w/ no spyware.
coopdog -- I slap you for your lies.
Pay Version? HA!
Offical Client for Mac -- NO
Access to KaZaA Network -- YES
edit: as for the lawsuit, good for them. The RIAA scanned their PRIVATE network using illegal methods to track users. Good Job Sherman fighting back.
I find it amusing, sue the sue happy... I doubt all of the lawsuits will make either of the change their ways.
Did I ever ****ing say official client, NO. All it is, is kazza media desktop with spyware removed. So basically it is Kazza. And yeah it is a pay version.
Heh, it's funny...I can just see the reason for their lawsuit:
"Well, you see, RIAA...how on earth are we supposed to get users to use our software, when you're not putting out anything remotely interesting for them to pirate?!"
One thing's for sure: all these lawsuits isn't going to bring the cost of music down, lawsuits cost loads of cash.
More expensive music = more illegal downloads
IMHO it'll all end up backfiring at them
I knew I should have become a lawyer!
They are the only ones that make any money off these suits.
I doubt either side will ever win and if they do it could take years, and by that time there will be new file sharing methods.
Of course if a judge places an injunction on the RIAA against using these illegal methods, then that could be a huge blow to the RIAA which would be good since they are eroding our rights!
LOL. Man American's just love to sue each other!
Its nice to see the Labels getting a taste of their own medicine, but lets hope the ITMS can end the need for illegal file sharing.
What the hell are you talking about?
KaZaA Lite was Killed.
KaZaA (offical) shut it down.
That just has the old version (the last release) of a FREE PRODUCT that they are now trying to SELL it... what, do you work for them or something?
And NO KaZaA Lite was NEVER for Mac.
For Mac there is MlMac, Poisoned and iSwipe. iSwipe has been is perpetual beta forever (1 devolper)... mLMac is using the edonk network so its just easier you get a command line then use their GUI version...
And Poisoned is probably the most finished product out of all of them.
*sigh* as for the case I'm glad the winner is always the Lawyers.
Keep suing... keep it coming.
P.S KaZaA Lite was Killed by Sherman Network (KaZaA) because it did violate its rights and software. The KaZaA Lite people took the code from KaZaA and improved it, what people are now trying to do is pass this Formely FREE software out and trying to sell it, which is also illegal.
