Kazaa told a court that the file-sharing company should not be liable for copyright infringement perpetrated by users of its network because Kazaa does not control how the software is used after download.
A group of Australian record labels filed suit against Sharman Networks, the makers of Kazaa, as well as the company's directors.
I don't know that shutting down these companies is the answer. But then I don't know of any valid reasons to have a software like Kazza... Are there any legal, valid reasons to own a public p2p client like this?
i live in a european capital and some of the music i want is not available in the virgin megastore. instead of getting the car, sit in traffic, pay for parking, queu up in an overheated store, order the cd, then do it again to go pick it up two weeks (!) later - i can download it overnight!
and imagine what the situation is for people in eastern europe, living in the country side. ADSL yes, decent record shops, forget it
id happily pay for it but even the best services like iTunes dont offer what im looking for
the big goons need to realise they should embrace this method of distributing music, not fight it

My personal arguments for and against P2P sharing in general have been overstated for many years, so let's not get into that argument again ... but suffice to say I really miss the glory days of Napster
