Kazaa Owner Settles Yet Another Round Of Lawsuits
from the anyone-else? dept
Back in July, Kazaa owner Sharman made news by settling the longstanding lawsuit filed against it by the record labels. Turns out, that wasn’t the only set of folks in the industry suing them. There was also the music publishers, and today they get their pound of flesh as Kazaa has agreed to pay up to the music publishers as well. No amounts are given, which suggests that it probably isn’t all that much, despite the phrase “substantial sum” thrown around. It makes you wonder why Kazaa even bothered, seeing as they don’t have much of a business any more. Either way, as with other recent deals, it will be interesting to see if the people actually involved as publishers end up getting any money out of this deal.
