The record industry does seem to be getting desperate. Tactics like 
parading prisoners on TV during the Superbowl and lashing out against a 
company that's doing a great job with Skype can't help but make me think of 
what nice people they are. It's the industry invited concepts like Payola. 
I wonder how many new Kazaas they will spawn.

: Investigators from the Australian recording industry raided the Sydney 
offices of the Internet file-swapping network Kazaa on Friday in search of 
evidence to support allegations of copyright infringements.
.
The raid was conducted under a rarely used law, known as Anton Pillar, 
which allows litigants in civil copyright cases to gather evidence.
.
The Federal Court gave record labels permission to raid 12 premises in 
three states to collect evidence against Kazaa, said Michael Speck, general 
manager of Music Industry Piracy Investigations.
.
Speck said the recording industry would file a civil action against Kazaa 
on Tuesday.
