    more office raids :: this time, Kazaa

    Music Industry Piracy Investigations this morning raided the offices of P2P companies Sharman Networks and Brilliant Digital Entertainment, along with the homes of key executives and several ISPs... Music Industry Piracy Investigations, MIPI obtained the right to do so, and some record companies, like Telstra are looking at their options in doing so too.

    Looks like Australia is gonna get even hotter.

    second office raid for piracy in two days. here's the first.

    I didn't read it thoroughly, but does this mean there's no future for Kazaa?

    oh, yeah, by the way nords, i'm suing you for mental distress.

    Scary that in Austrailia, a court can allow a private organization to gather evidence on it's own.

    Methinks Ashcroft likes that idea.

    [offtopic]I just heard on the radio there that some women is suing Janet Jackson for mental stress caused by you know what. I would research a link for you guys but I refuse to fuel the fire of Internet searches on the subject.[/offtopic]

    and I'm going to counter-sue for taking away my joy and pursuit for happiness and the inherent rights that she's infringing upon with her claim... I think I can get Budweiser, Playboy, Larry Flynt, football fans, and any male that's had a fanboy crush on Ms. Jackson to support me.

    Class action suit against Tennessee women and their blatant disregard for having teeth will be my next lawsuit. Who's in?

    it won't really affect Kazaa users, kazaa use a thrid party network (gnutella??) so even if Kazaa got shut down, users can still keep using the software and the network.

    What's next for those A$$ Wholes from RIAA. Kazzaa & other P2P companies do nothing wrong per se. The users of the software are the problem. I expect they wanted to gain access to "Industrial Secrets/Knowledge" to enable better tracking of file sharers. If I used MS Word version x to produce Hate/Racist Mail & then export it via Outlook, would the authorities have the right to Raid MS and nose around in confidential material on the off chance that by knowing Microsofts internal structures will better enable them to track me down.

    By the way I am not a Racist, I hate everyone equally.
