Sharman Networks is a company headquartered in Australia and incorporated in Vanuatu. It owns the rights to the KaZaA file sharing software. It was created for this purpose in 2001 when the original owners of KaZaA were sued in the Netherlands.

In December 2003, Sharman shut down Kazaa Lite K++ by serving DMCA notices to all the server owners that hosted the software.

In April 2004 Sharman threatened legal action against Markus Kern for his distribution of the giFT Fasttrack plugin claiming that reverse engineering Sharman's Fasttrack network was illegal.

The CEO of Sharman Networks is Nikki Hemming. Alan Morris is the executive vice president. Phil Morle is the director of technology.

The company is currently involved in legal brawls in Australia and the U.S. over the alleged use of KaZaA to infringe copyrights.
