    Can someone explain to me why K-lite is being hunted and Diet KaZaA not?
    One of the isuses for Sharman to get rid of K-lite was the removal of the adware, so no advertisement could come through and therefore no income for Sharman.
    But Diet KaZaA also strips the original KMD of spyware and adware (at least it is claimed by the makers of Diet KaZaA). This is exactly the same!

    Anyone?

    Thnx for the link SH, but they're saying DietK is legal???
    Just cause the source code of KMD remains intact?
    Unbelievable. I think K-lite was/is too popular and Sharman's business came under threat (they thought).

    now it is nearly clear for me. but i will use klite until it doesn't work anymore. but maybe it will take some time

    k-lite is big enough that they believe we affect their income.

    Diet-k still needs either kazaa or k-lite to work...so they still get the downloads.

    Its the number of downloads that affects their money, as they have no idea as to how many of their users actually receive the advertisements. I cant see them spending money to go after Diet K...

    I have an idea, why doesn't someone make an installer for KMD with Diet-K in it?
