Kazaa foes join up to fight pirates and porn

Two former adversaries who squared off in a bitter legal battle over Kazaa have joined forces to invent new technology that they say will eliminate the illegal sharing of pirated content and child porn over peer-to-peer networks.Kevin Bermeister, sued for millions by the music industry between 2004 and 2006 over his association with what was once the world’s most popular file sharing service, and Michael Speck, who ran the music industry’s case as the head of its anti-piracy arm, Music Industry Piracy Investigations, are now partners in a venture dubbed Brilliant Digital Entertainment.The pair have developed an application designed to run on existing internet service provider networks that enables the “instantaneous conversion of infringing activity into legitimate content transactions”.
