    Yep, that is pretty ironic!

    Maybe the owner should stop including so much spyware/adware with his program, then ppl wouldn't need to find an alternative?

    Cool

    OMG, that’s got to be one of the ironies of the year. I hope this is not successful, but in the US where burglars can sue the owner of the house they burgled, who knows! Damn blood-sucking lawyers

    Kazaa and it's networks were granted space as being a legitimate piece of software and network and the owners are only trying to protect their property.

    But surely “Dr. X” you see the irony of trying to protect the copyright of a piece of software that is used almost exclusively to break copyright law?

    “Granted space”, what does this mean, and granted by whom?

    Anders, yeah I see the irony ;-D

    This isn't te link I was looking for (similar conclusion reacged by a US court..) http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=0...thread&tid=123

    but basically
    First, the courts in the Netherlands rule against Kazaa, in a higher appeal, the courts rule in favour of Kazaa saying "The software itself doesn't commit any illegal acts, it's the users that could do that, therefore the software is legal"
    - the network and software itself is legal, in the same sense that a VCR or CD-RW can be used for the copying of copyrighted material, that doesn't make the system itself resposible.

    Very true, but a CD-RW wasn't built with the sole purpose of copying pirated music/software, etc.

    btw im a bit pissed ;D
