Entertainment Industry’s Stifles More Technology

The Register: KaZaA ordered to cease infringing copyright. Music sharing system KaZaA has been given two weeks by a Dutch court to cease infringing recording artists’ copyrights.

Of course, it wasn’t KaZaA that was infringing. It was the users of the software.

That distinction matters not a bit to the entertainment moguls who want to stop all forms of digital distribution they don’t control outright. The fact that there are excellent non-infringing uses of this technology means nothing to them or, apparently, to the courts.

And the assault on users’ rights continues.
