Kazaa, Skype and Venice project cofounder Niklas Zennstrom may have paid for his file sharing past, but he still thinks Kazaa was a good idea.

The International Herald Tribune quotes him with the following words:

"Kazaa came five years too early, but without that and Napster we would never have seen the transformation we're seeing in the music industry."

I'm the last person to dispute that file sharing systems have advanced digital media distribution. But five years to early? Really?
