Kazaa Appeal Goes Forward Down Under

Sharman Networks, operators of the Kazaa service, began their appeal this week of a September ruling in Australian Federal Court that found them guilty of encouraging users to infringe on copyrights.  The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that Sharman has cut off Kazaa access to all Australian users pending the appeal.  Music Industry Piracy  Investigations (MIPI) is also appealing five points they lost against Sharman in the original hearing.  The full bench of the Federal Court has set aside five days to hear the appeals.

The Morning Herald story is here.  Australian IT also carries a report here.
