    From el Reg:

    This weekend users of Kazaa Lite K++ learned that almost every download site of the popular peer-to-peer file-sharing application had disappeared, including the links on its own home page.

    Sharman Networks, the company behind the original Kazaa, approached the ISP of every website that hosted the program and ordered its removal on grounds of copyright infringement.


    Full story here

    Oh the irony of the piece... Kazaa orders the removal of a product that infringes it's copyright - Which is based on it's own product that allows millions of people to infringe other companies copyright... ;)

    that is depressing news. it is BS, since kazaa is for pirating.
