It wasn't too long in the past when the downfall off Napster came about, followed by what seemed to be the collapse of Kazaa, the highly popular sharing system used by millions of people. But the tables seems to have reversed...

Kazaa this week launched a countersuit against the industry's claims of copyright infringement mainly because of the substantial amount of users found to be in California even though the company is registered in Vanutu and based in Australia where the copyright laws are not in comparison to American copyright laws.

The counter lawsuit from Kazaa (Sharman Networks Ltd) alleges "copyright misuse, monopolization, and deceptive acts and practices." as quoted by Yahoo News Source.

"In seeking to simultaneously stop illegal copying and to maintain their dominant position in the distribution of musical and movie content, the industry plaintiffs have obscenely overreached," Sharman said.

The Recording Industry Association of America thinks otherwise though. Their retort was that of:

"Sharman's claims are akin to the thief who plunders Fort Knox and then claims she's not responsible because Fort Knox declined to buy her second-rate security system..."

A futile response from Kazaa / Sharman Networks? Or is this one of the strongest attacks on the industry yet?
