Sharman Sues Music Industry - Again
September 24, 2003
Sharman Networks has revisited it earlier lawsuit against the RIAA. During the early months of 2003, Sharman filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the RIAA, claiming that the music industry prevented the distribution of authorized works. The judge in the case readily rejected the suit, however allowed wiggle room for a comeback.
Not only is Sharman suing for the aforementioned, its is now targeting the RIAA for copyright infringement. Sharman claims that the RIAA is using the infamous Kazaa Lite, a popular and superior version of the Kazaa software. Through this software, Sharman claims the RIAA is gathering information on their users, distribution false files, and harassing FastTrack users with instant messages.
