Kazaa upgrade adds filter function

Australia-based Sharman Networks released a new version of its popular Kazaa file-trading software Thursday, adding a new look and a few features to the peer-to-peer program. The software now includes a password-locked "family filter" function that allows parents to block downloads of pornography or other material. A recommendations feature has also been added. The download continues to be bundled with several "adware" programs, as well as Brilliant Digital Entertainment software. The Brilliant Digital software, which will ultimately turn people's computers into a new file-swapping network controlled by that company, has prompted considerable online criticism recently after its purpose was revealed. Brilliant Digital CEO Kevin Bermeister has said the company will ask Kazaa users' permission before activating this software and using people's computer resources, however. --John Borland, Special to ZDNet News

New owner gives Kazaa a facelift

Australia's Sharman Networks on Monday unveiled a new version of its popular Kazaa file-swapping software. The update, called Kazaa Media Desktop 1.5, comes with a new function for download recommendations, faster search results, faster start-up time and an automated feature that lets people communicate with contacts, according to the developer. The relaunch comes just weeks after the software's former Dutch owner, Consumer Empowerment, suspended downloads of the software from its Web site in response to legal threats in the Netherlands and sold the service to Sharman. However, Kazaa users reportedly were able to continue sharing files over the network, which requires no support other than an Internet connection. The software faces other legal tests. In October, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) sued Kazaa and other popular file-swapping services Morpheus and Grokster. The suit alleged the services were aiding copyright infringement. --Jim Hu and John Borland, Special to ZDNet News
