KaZaA claims that it's not possible to stop its user

Music sharing operation KaZaA has responded to a Dutch court's order to cease infringing copyright by stating that it is impossible for it to do so.

The company was yesterday given two weeks to prevent users of its software from sharing material they have no right to distribute to others. Today, KaZaA said it simply can't do what the Judge ordered. Why? Because it has no way of identifying those who use its software.

"The computer program has already been distributed," said KaZaA lawyer Christiaan Alberdink Thijm. "KaZaA can't see what sort of files people are sharing or who its users are."
