RIAA and Sharman legal battles continue

By Derek Sooman on December 2, 2002, 5:00 AM
The U.S. District Federal Court Judge is currently hearing the case for summary judgment against Sharman Networks, parent company behind the P2P file sharing service Kazaa. The Federal Court Judge will listen to further arguments from both the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Sharman, who both want the summary judgement motion settled by the judge without going to full trial. The RIAA and the copyright holders want Kazaa network shutdown immediately, whereas Sharman is contending that there is not sufficient evidence to legally do so.

Will Kazaa go the way of Napster? Post a comment now.
