The Australia based Sharman Networks Ltd., Kazaa's owner, struck a deal with a major European ISP named Tiscali. Under this agreement, Kazaa will advertise the Tiscali high-speed internet access. In turn, Kazaa will receive what is termed as a "bounty" for each user that signs up. I wonder if Kazaa might try to open a legal market for music distribution.

"Prior to this, you could characterize KaZaA as a beleaguered company on the outskirts," said Mark F. Radcliffe, an intellectual property laywer in Palo Alto, Calif. "This gives legitimacy to KaZaA."
