WASHINGTON (AP) -- The company behind software called "Kazaa," which made it
simple for millions of computer users to download music and movies over the
Internet, has agreed to pay more than $115 million to the entertainment
industry to settle global piracy lawsuits, the industry said Thursday.

Sharman Networks Ltd., which produced and distributed the popular Kazaa
software, also promised to "use all reasonable means" to discourage online
piracy, including building into its software "robust and secure" ways to
frustrate computer users who try to find and download copyrighted music and
movies, court papers said.
