Default I heard Microsoft is going to buy Kazaa

I heard Microsoft is going to buy Kazaa legitimizing the file swapping movement?

What do you all think

Uh...how would MS "legitimize" Kaaza? A copyright is a copyright, it will allways be illegal.

Oh well.. If they buy it they will just commercialize it and make it pay per use. Basically rendering it completely useless as everyone flocks to a newer free p2p software/platform.

That article has nothing to do with Microsoft buying Kazaa, it just shows that they are smart enough to use viral marketing to get out advertising about some of their products.

that is probably a rumor and 100% false.

microsoft has a new project called "three degrees" which will be a legal solution to the file sharing dillema. it's probably not going to take flight, but it's a great idea.

they probably would spend their money on their own project before buying kazaa.

If you forward that post on to 10 people, Bill gates will personally give each recipient, plus you, $425! Microsoft is testing a new post tracking technology and needs testers. MS is running low on employees and funds, you know, so it's cheaper to pay everyone on the planet.

Quick, send it NOW!
