Man Bites Dog, Dog shares snuff film of the act on the internet, Cat Dowloads Film.

AP Wire reports that a federal Judge has allowed KAZAA, a file-sharing software maker, to bid to sue entertainment companies. " A federal judge has ruled that the makers of the most popular file-sharing software can pursue copyright infringement claims against several movie and music companies."

As it turns out, in their bid to prosecute those who illegally share their copyrighted material, severla music and movie companies downloaded Kazza Lite and then, in violation of Kazaa's licensing agreement, used the service to threaten its users. Now, I can understand Sony music wanting to use Kazaa to warn file swappers, but for goodness sakes, BUY THE SOFTWARE!
