Ruling on Kazaa search orders tomorrow The Australian Federal court will give a ruling on whether or not the recent raids made at the office of Sharman Networks, the owner of Kazaa peer-to-peer application, were made based on valid reasons. Music Industry Piracy Investigations, the anti-piracy faction of Australian music industry raided the offices of Kazaa, and others in February.
Soon after the raid Kazaa questioned the raid, and said the judge who granted the search warrant was not presented with all the facts regarding the case.

The ruling will be given tomorrow morning EST.

I am pulling for Sharman. I don't know how much Australians value their privacy, but here in America they are getting away with murder invading our privacy, anytime they have a whim. The Judges are involved with law making, instead of interpretating the law and enforcing it. Best to All! Rodgers

Are thy going to go through each town and into yours and my home like the German SS troops did? Have you heard the St the music industry is putting out? Who what to copy it? How totally screwed up the priorities and values of our governments, law enforcement, From World War I up to today 1,000,000 United States Veterans made the ultimate sacrifice for the good of free people everywhere and for what? Just to have it come back to there door.
