Kazaa Wakes Up From Lawsuit-Induced Coma, Vows To Go Legit

Old-line filesharing services can’t seem to switch sides fast enough: Now Kazaa, leading purveyor of illegal MP3s and maliciously mislabelled pornography for few years in the early 2000s, has been reborn as a legal, paid music download service. $US20 a month gets you unlimited downloads, 2005-style: in WMA format, wrapped in tons of DRM. The history of iPod-incompatible music stores is littered with dead bodies, so, well, best of luck. [SMH via The Inquirer]
