Kazaa gets slapped in Australia

The Federal Court in Australia has ruled that Sharman Networks has essentially authorized its users to violate copyright, so they must now modify it to prevent that. So now the recording industry is doing their little victory breakdance. "This is a milestone in the fight against internet piracy worldwide," said John Kennedy, chairman of the International Federation of Phonographic INdustries. Sharman Networks is also being ordered to pay 90% of the legal bill of the plaintiffs. Ars Technica
