KAZAA VERSUS THE MUSIC INDUSTRY: What is, of course, most amusing about the battle the Australian music industry are fighting in court against Kazaa is the sheer level of effort, money and people ARIA have investing in chasing after a peer network already in decline. Yes, they may have come up with a fair point when they asked in court yesterday if you can block child porn sharers, why can't you block copyright infringers (although surely the answer there is 'do you really believe there's a moral equivalence between someone offering a picture of a three-year old being anally raped and someone diddling Phil Collins out of a third of penny royalties?'), but... fighting Kazaa? What, do they intend to fly back in time with a court judgement to when Kazaa was the threat to them?
