Software Gives Parents Chance to Snoop

As part of three-pronged, anti-piracy attack launched Tuesday, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) plans to release free software to help parents determine what movie and music titles their children have stored on a computer, along with any installed peer-to-peer (P2P) file-swapping programs.

In addition to the snooping software, the MPAA filed civil lawsuits seeking damages and injunctive relief against an undisclosed number of P2P movie file-swappers and announced an anti-piracy publicity campaign that will be rolled out in approximately 10,000 video rental stores nationwide.

According to the MPAA, information generated by the free software program will be available only to the program's user and will not be "shared with or reported" to the MPAA or any other organization.
