Kazaa Launches Peculiar Advertising Blitz

Facing billions of dollars in losses because of recording-industry lawsuits, music-pirating service Kazaa this week launched an advertising blitz in which it's asking the public to rally against lawmakers and entertainment-industry bigwigs who are trying to shut down the service. The ads are asking Kazaa's estimated 60 million users to "join the revolution" by "proclaiming their love of Kazaa to politicians, journalists, record labels, movie companies, and friends." So, music piracy isn't illegal if it receives enough love? We're no fans of the recording industry, but this campaign is ridiculous.
