Sue Them All!!

Kazaa about to become the single most popular free software on the Web with 230 million downloads – the RIAA intends to sue and/or disable the computers of every one of those bastards:

    As of late Thursday, the Kazaa Media Desktop application–a file-sharing software that has drawn the wrath of the music industry by enabling its users to swap songs for free–had been downloaded 229,150,955 times, as measured by Download.com, which is owned by CNET Networks, publisher of News.com.

    Sharman said by midday Friday it expected Kazaa to top the record set by ICQ. As of Thursday, ICQ has been downloaded 229,363,307 times, according to Download.com.

    A Sharman representative said Kazaa has been receiving an average of 366,000 downloads per day, whereas the ICQ application has been receiving an average of 50,000 downloads per day, as measured by Download.com. [Reuters]
