Former file sharer Kazaa set to return as a legitimate website

Yet another infamous name goes legal

Former online peer-to-peer file sharing service Kazaa is set to be relaunched as a legitimate music service.

The site was one of the best known for the swapping of copyrighted music at the beginning of the decade, but will return as a legal subscription download site under the ownership Brilliant Digital Entertainment, reports

Kazaa follows Napster and more recently Pirate Bay, who have both gone “legitimate” after being accused of infringing copyright by the music industry.
