“AN Australian internet company that can ban users who access child pornography should also be able to track music illegally downloaded, a court heard yesterday. Major record companies are seeking to prove that the owners of Kazaa – the world’s most popular internet file-sharing software – are liable. Kazaa allows users to swap digital music files over the internet, with 100 million users worldwide sharing three billion music files a month.
But the record labels which license the music claim Kazaa is the biggest music piracy system ever seen. They are suing Sydney-based Sharman Networks, which develops and distributes the software, for copyright infringement.”
