Remember Kazaa, the peer-to-peer file sharing site that allowed users to share music files over the Internet? Well, it's back – but with a difference.
The original site was shut down by the music industry, which sued it for copyright infringement in a $150-million suit. This time around, users will have to pay to download legal music.
Under the new model, users will pay $20.00 per month and will be able to download as many songs as they want to during that period.
Adding a new feature, US users will be able to pay for the service through their phone bill. And it will also double as a social networking site, with users able to upload and share videos.
Initially, the new-look Kazaa will be available only in the US because of licencing constraints, but the site owners are reportedly keen to expand it soon.
