"File-sharing site Kazaa will become a legal music download service following a series of high profile legal battles. The announcement follows the release of a music industry report that says more than 20 billion music tracks have been downloaded illegally in the last year.

It was unclear whether the move prevented music piracy as many file-swappers stopped using Kazaa in favour of other networks.
