Kazaa indemniza indústria discográfica em 10 milhões de dólares

2 posts in this topic

Depois de vários anos a ser alvo de processos por parte das entidades discográficas, o Kazaa chegou a acordo com a National Music Publisher Association, aceitando pagar uma quantia avultada a autores e às editoras do sector.

Os termos do acordo são desconhecidos, sabendo-se apenas que a maquia ronda os 10 milhões de dólares, publica a versão online do New York Times.

O Kazaa compromete-se ainda a manter a utilização de software de filtragem que previna as trocas de ficheiros não autorizados através da rede de partilhas do programa.

Já em 2001, tanto a indústria discográfica como a cinematográfica processaram o Kazaa, o Grokster e o Morpheus alegando que os serviços promoviam a distribuição ilegal de material protegido por direitos de autor.

Resultado deste processo o Kazaa, propriedade da Sharman Networks, acabou por pagar uma indemnização de 115 milhões de dólares a artistas e estúdios cinematográficos, um valor elevado quando comparado com os 10 milhões de dólares agora previstos na nova indemnização.

Bem ao que parece também a Cia utiliza P2P.

America's intelligence services have gotten into p2p file sharing in a big way. But it's for their eyes only.

They're using a Wikipedia-type site to share secret information across agency boundaries, says the IDG News Service.

"Intellipedia, based on the open-source software that powers Wikipedia, allows free-flowing discussion about intelligence on topics such as terrorism and Al Qaeda," says the story, continuing:

"Intellipedia, launched in April, was officially unveiled during a conference in Denver in August, but members of the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) used Tuesday's briefing to highlight the growth and uses of the new tool.

"Employees of the two agencies created Intellipedia following widespread criticism about a lack of intelligence-sharing before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S., and later mistaken intelligence reports saying Iraq was developing weapons of mass destruction."

Intellipedia isn't officially open to the publc, but you can be sure hackers around the world are making plans to change that.

For now, it's, has three categories ranging from "sensitive but unclassified" to "top secret," says The San Francisco Chronicle.

"Officials said the program is still being developed and has not replaced existing procedures used to create intelligence reports delivered to President Bush and other policymakers. But it is being used to assemble preliminary judgments for a forthcoming National Intelligence Estimate on Nigeria and could someday supplant the more cumbersome mechanisms used to create such reports."

Since DNI and the CIA launched Intellipedia, "the site has had more than 13 million page views, 3,300 registered users, and 28,000 pages created," IDG has Don Burke, with CIA directorate of science and technology, stating.

But, says the Chronicle, quoting Michael Wertheimer, DNI's deputy director of analysis and cto, "Not all U.S. intelligence analysts have embraced the new tool," although many younger analysts have.

"This is how they do their work," he said. "This is how they like to work."
