Revealed: The Kazaa hottest 100

Coldplay, Jet, The Beatles, Delta Goodrem, and even Shannon Noll featured in a list of 100 songs that record companies on Tuesday claimed were illegally made available on the Kazaa file-sharing system.

In the Federal Court in Sydney, the record companies presented Justice Murray Wilcox and Sharman Networks with the list of songs they claim they have evidence of being swapped illegally on the Kazaa peer-to-peer network.

The list included a range of songs from recent years, from Andrea Bocelli to Shaggy. Labels such as EMI and Sony listed a raft of hits such as 'Yellow' by Coldplay, 'Come Away With Me' by Norah Jones, and 'Better Man' by Pearl Jam.

Justice Wilcox had previously asked the record companies to limit their claim of songs to 100 for time purposes after the companies' legal representatives said they would claim 1000.

The list comes after repeated past requests by Sharman Networks for the labels to state what material they claim had been infringed.

Sharman is still waiting for the record companies to provide the materials used in their lawsuit against Sharman in the US.

Justice Wilcox confirmed the Australian trial would begin on 29 November.

The record companies have until 24 September to present evidence of copyright infringement.

Proceedings will continue on 14 October.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
