Australian federal court justice Murray Wilcox had given Kazaa until today to comply with an order to come up with a keyword filtering system based on a 3,000-word library supplied by the members of the Big Four Organized Music family. Sharman was reportedly on the verge of handing off, in effect, to Audible Magic, an application touted heavily by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) and which, according to RIAA boss Mitch Bainwol, would have been perfect for the job.
