Kazaa Now Offers Free Internet Phone Calling Feature

    November 29, 2004

According to wire reports Sharman Networks has added Internet-based phone calls to the popular file-sharing program Kazaa.

Legal experts are quoted as saying that this may be a preemptive by Sharman Networks, which owns Kazaa, to legitimize the software.

“The notion that we do something as major as that for any reason other than straightforward commercial reasons is no, absolutely not,” commented Alan Morris, executive vice president of Sharman Networks in Sydney, Australia. “There’s absolutely no way, you go ‘OK, this will be really good if they criticize us.'”

The phone service is expected to be included in a Kazaa upgrade release later this week.
