"The Motion Picture Association Of America has begun targeting
Gnutella users, having successfully seen off Scour. The Ass. has
started contacting US ISPs and university network administrators to
warn them that some of their users are illegally sharing copyright
"And in response to such pressure from the MPAA, Excite@Home,
for one, has begun emailing users demanding they cease their
alleged copyright infringing actions on pain of being disconnected.
Says the email:"
"We have received a complaint from [the MPAA] that you are
distributing copyrighted material via Gnutella using your @Home
Network services. We are requesting that you immediately remove any
files which you are distributing in violation of copyright and
cease this activity within 24 hours.
