Napster has been neutered, and now it looks like the MPAA will have its day in the spotlight by going after Gnutella.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has sent hundreds of letters to major Internet service providers and universities, warning them that some people on their networks are violating the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by trading copyrighted movies through Gnutella.

Some of the universities that have been targeted in the MPAA’s investigation include Harvard University and the University of Connecticut. Meanwhile, ISP Excite@Home has sent out about 20 e-mails and letters over the past four days telling Gnutella users their services will be terminated within 24 hours if their alleged movie sharing continues.

And they said P2P file trading services would be safe. I suppose all good things must come to an end. Check out the entire story at C|Net.
