Kazaa's day in Australian court

Kazaa has been chased around the world by lawyers for the entertainment giants, bent on stopping the adoption of new media distribution technologies. They were chased out of the Netherlands having lost a case (which was overturned on appeal) and went to Australia.

Now, they are in court again, this time it's the Australian music industry attempting to bust them for copyright breach. This was reported on ABC news tonight in a two minute segment, a copy of which is available here as a DivX video (5Mb).

If the music industry wins this one, it won't do a fat lot of good anyway, as more programs and protocols will appear to take it's place.
