Kazaa Gives Apple the Finger, Streams Music from Web with No App Needed

 |  |  |  March 8, 2011

Back in the day Kazaa was one of the places that many folks went to get their pirate on and share tunes without paying for them. After the RIAA got a hold of Napster and other peer-to-peer sharing sites Kazaa decided to go legit and started selling music subscriptions.

Apple not long ago started a new policy that charges 30% of the subscription revenue on an ongoing basis if you sell a subscription via an iOS app. That didn’t sit well with Kazaa, and the company has a workaround in place for subscribers right now.

If you have a Kazaa account, you can hit the website on your iPhone, iPod or Android device and stream all the music you want directly to your device without Apple getting a cut of the loot you pay. Your monthly subscription fee can also be paid by credit card or billed to your mobile phone account.
