Sharman, based in Australia, is seeking a jury trial and damages in what is sure to be one of the biggest cases to test the reach of US copyright law. Tonight on "Tech Live," get the latest details of the suit that could determine your ability to download your favorite entertainment from the Web.

    There is certainly a possibility that this countersuit will have merit.
    I'll be staying tuned for sure!

    Of course, my opinion of KaZaa remains as low as ever, but the ramifications of a victory for them will be huge.

    Yes wouldn't it as it would rattle the foundations of a long time monolith that has exploited many for a very long time and was allowed to get away with it. Yes I have very bad opinions about p2p myself but some sort of even footin' must be made to bring that industry into line with the rest of the world and it's standards. :mad:

    I believe I still have an older version of the Lite package if you want. v1.71 if I recall... before they started adding stuff to the Lite bundle. ;)

    Thanks for the offer Darthtanion, but I'll take a pass on that 1. I already have more files in my to-do list than I have hard drive

    The RIAA should get up to speed and apply a bit less effort toward greed.
