Kazaa to offer legal movie downloads

TheAge: "An Australian surf movie and a Bollywood blockbuster have premiered as the first full-length feature films to be available - legitimately - via the peer-to-peer file-sharing application Kazaa.
Surf movie maestro Jack McCoy's Tahitian odyssey, To' Day of Days, (To' is pronounced 'toe') can be downloaded for $US4.90 ($6.80). It joins the Hindi language film Supari, a thriller by director Padam Kumar, which costs $US2.99.

The two films will provide Kazaa's owner, Sydney-based Sharman Networks, with important examples to woo other filmmakers and prove itself as a bona-fide distribution network."

I think this will only work if they are going to sell popular movies.
