Ironically, in 2004 - Sharman Networks forced our hosting provider to have us take down our downloads. More information is available here.

Current Version - 3.0*
*The Official KaZaA versions are not available. You will be redirected to download K-Lite Pro from our affiliate.



I have taken the liberty of adjusting the text to the minimum of how I would prefer it.

Thank you, I will forward that to our site administrator so he can make the appropriate changes.

I apologize if anyone feels this is a deceptive move on our part. This advertisement helps us pay for our hosting bills. The PHP system will be required to be redone just a little bit in order for the asterick to be allowed to appear like that and I will make sure that is going to proceed into development.

Thank you for noting your concerns, GoSlow.

For now, I have underlined and bolded the asterick. Hopefully this will clear up further confusion for the time being.

Thanks Ablix ,as much transparency as possible is an improvement.

Redirection is the bane of a seeker and is a bit of a sore point.

The kazza page I guess is an attempt to salvage something out of a bad situation, however to be perceived to be profiting from the removal of artifacts from an archive is perhaps counter productive especially when other "no strings attached" funding is turned away.

I have no problem with earning money via advertising,merely the method of the push.

There's always KLR 8 (Kazaa Lite Resurrection) or a bit older KazaaLite K++ and a few other versions that are spyware free :) Problem is people in the States (& maybe elsewhere) get actually traced through the servers and sued if sharing copyright materials :| But suppose it happens with most file sharing programs, except maybe Torrents ..
