IFPI, MPAA to release anti-piracy app

— 12:39 AM on September 23, 2005

The International Federation of Phonographic Industry (IFPI) has teamed up with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to introduce software designed to stymie illicit peer-to-peer traffic on private networks. Dubbed Digital File Check, the program is apparently capable of not only blocking P2P apps, but also deleting copyrighted material. It's being pushed as a solution for corporations looking to police internal networks and avoid copyright holder lawsuits, and its creators insist that it doesn't phone home to anti-piracy organizations to report any infractions.
