Kazaa turns the tables on the RIAA

An interesting article from Yahoo! News - Makers of Kazaa Are Suing Record Labels.

Sharman Networks accuse labels of using unauthorized copies of their software in their attempts to nab supposed pirates. Sharman also claims violation of their terms of use, as well as violation of anti-trust laws. Considering the actions the RIAA has taken recently, it's about time someone gave them a taste of their own medicine. On the other hand, this is yet another instance of litigiusness spinning crazily out of control, especially on this issue.

On a related note: someone hit my site yesterday by searching Yahoo with the terms, "unionize fans against the riaa." I'm with you there, friend.
