Subject: Raids target Kazaa offices


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.
