File-Sharing Networks May Battle Each Other
from the a-music-industry-dream dept
Because they’re such big supporters of intellectual property (yes, there’s some sarcasm here), Brilliant Digital, the folks behind Altnet – and possibly behind Kazaa as well, have announced that they’re going to go after every other file sharing network they can find for patent infringement. The company claims they own a patent on using a hash to identify files. Of course, this comes right after the company announced they’re basically out of money.
