De huidige eigenaar van KaZaA, Sharman Networks, heeft een zeldzaam interview gegeven aan LinuxInsider. Wat vindt Sharman van de RIAA?
“I have the benefit of many years thinking about P2P and its potential, and they have not got past the stage of fear. I am naturally disappointed that we are all wasting time and money on futile legal battles when everyone could be growing their businesses and benefiting users today. P2P will endure. We at Sharman have great confidence in this, and in the future we will look back and wonder what all the fuss was about, as we do today with videocassettes.”
“The only privacy issue in Kazaa was the capacity to view the entire contents of a user’s shared folder. This functionality is now disabled by default to prevent abuse and has been disabled for some time. We want to put the users in charge of their own privacy.”
