    Kazaa Owner Gets OK to Sue Movie, Record Companies

    A U.S. federal court has cleared the way for Kazaa file-sharing software owner Sharman Networks to sue the entertainment industry for copyright infringement, Sharman said on Friday.

    Sharman, targeted by studios and record companies because its software is used to trade music and video files, has sought to turn the tables on the industry, accusing it of misusing Kazaa software to invade users' privacy and send corrupt files and threatening messages.

    Studios and record companies had asked the court to throw out Sharman's countersuit, but U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson in Los Angeles declined to do so.

    Sharman, headquartered on the island nation of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, said it would pursue the case.

    A spokesman for the Recording Industry Association of America said, "The court does not appear to want these claims to proceed at this point. If they ever proceed, Sharman will have a very difficult time providing evidence to support their allegations."

    The RIAA has it seems appointed itself judge and jury as well as internet police with warrants in hand.I would like to see the hackers step forward and rat them(RIAA)out for sending corrupt files.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
