Investigators working for the Australian Recording Industry Association raided the offices of Sharman Networks Ltd., makers of Kazaa peer-to-peer file-sharing software, Friday searching for evidence linking the company to copyright infringement, the company said. The company was served with a "search and seize" order issued by a judge at the Federal Court of Australia. The homes of two Sharman executives were also searched, according to Sharman. The company's Cremorne, Australia, headquarters was raided by Music Industry Piracy Investigations, a branch of the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) early Friday morning, local time, said Rich Chernela, a Sharman spokesman.
