The owner of Kazaa, Sharman Networks has been ordered to 'upgrade the software' so that it makes it impossible to search for music artists on the network.
Wigged one, Justice Murray Wilcox, has ordered Sharman to modify the file-sharing software to block a list of search terms by 5 December. The record companies will be allowed to update the list of search terms every two weeks.
Justice Wilcox has also demanded that Kazaa place maximum pressure on users to obtain the updated release with the blocked search engine on it.
According to ZDNet in Australia, the record companies have a list of 10,000 keywords they want Kazaa to block. More here. µ
