Just to update anyone who needs further convincing,

Sharman Networks, the owner of Kazaa was just raided by Australian police, as well as seizing records from the main telecommunication provider and universities etc.

The owner, Nikki Hemming was questioned and court action is pending.

I guess the recording industry still hasn't learnt it's lesson from Napster yet.

Not yet. Anyway, they are only after heavy users.

The reason they targeted Kazaa is because it's the most popular of any software and they are trying to send a message.

They will never win. Close one, and another opens. Once they decide to sell quality songs like Itunes, then they will get somewhere.
