US lawmakers propose anti-P2P legislation

February 27, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Two senators have recently introduced the P2P Cyber Protection and Informed User Act, which “…would prohibit peer-to-peer file-sharing programs from being installed without the informed consent of the authorized computer user.

The legislation would also prohibit P2P software that would prevent the authorized user from blocking the installation of a P2P file-sharing program and/or disabling or removing any P2P file-sharing program.

Software developers would be required to clearly inform users when their files are made available to other peer-to-peer users under legislation introduced Feb. 24 by Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and John Thune, R-S.D.”
