Kazaa making a comeback, this time legit Kazaa, one of the most notorious P2P software of yesteryear is set to make a comeback in 2009, this time as a legal subscription music service.
Sources speaking to Cnet say the rebirth could happen as soon as August and will turn the once infamous unauthorized downloading hub into a new subscription service with catalogs from the Big 4 labels.

Unlimited downloads will cost $20 USD a month and the store is expected to open with over a million tracks available.

Napster, the original file sharing site to feel the wrath of the record label, reopened as a legal music store in 2003.

Pirate Bay & Kazaa, hi, welcome.
I'd like you to meet pay site Napster 2.0.

You guys should talk, i think you'll find something very interesting about Napster when they went legit and to a pay site.

20$ a month unlimited is to much, 10-15$ would be better.

I actually miss the FastTrack network.

It's too bad Sharman reconfigured it not to work anymore.

Mate regardless of what price they set it would not matter because lower would always be better but they have to start somewhere.
