Catching Up: KaZaA Settlement?

Kazaa Said to Agree to Pay $10 Million to Music Publishers

Kazaa, the file sharing network that record companies have been battling for years, has tentatively resolved the last of the major lawsuits that were hanging over its head.

Under the settlement with the National Music Publishers’ Association, Kazaa agreed to pay music publishers and songwriters a “substantial sum,” the association said. Though the exact terms of the deal remain confidential, a person with knowledge of the agreement said the amount was about $10 million.
