“The newest version of Kazaa contains code which will rewrite URLs to sites like Amazon.com which allows affiliates to earn commission from sales they refer to Amazon. If you were to have this software installed and click through one of Lockergnome’s book links to Amazon, Kazaa would end up getting credit for any sales that may have resulted from your visit to the site.”
Somehow this doesn’t surprise me at all about Kazaa, it’s already spying on you, and who knows what else, why shouldn’t it steal commisions from small site owners too? I hope anyone trying to help out this site by using the Amazon links is smart enough to not be fooled into giving the $$ to Kazaa instead. I think I’d be pretty peeved if that happened.
