Music publishers say Kazaa deal reached

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:50 pm

The music publishing industry reached a tentative deal with operators of the Kazaa file-sharing network over claims of copyright infringement, an industry group said.

Publishers pursuing a class-action suit against Kazaa informed U.S. District Court on Monday that the peer-to-peer network had agreed to pay “a substantial sum” under the agreement, the National Music Publishers’ Association said in a statement.

The amount of the settlement was not disclosed. It is subject to final approval by the association board.
