Hollywood Petitions Fortune 1,000 Companies to Patrol File-Sharing

Washington -- Entertainment companies sent a letter to the CEO of every
Fortune 1,000 company this week, asking them to "take whatever steps
necessary to ensure that their networks are not being misused to infringe
copyrighted works." The letter, jointly signed by the Motion Picture
Association of America (MPAA), the National Music Publishers' Association
(NMPA), Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the
Songwriters Guild of America (SGA), targets the use of file-sharing
networks like Kazaa and Gnutella in the workplace, where employees
typically have access to high-speed Internet connections. Several of the
same groups sent a similar letter to colleges and universities, asking
them to patrol their networks for copyright infringements and educate
students about file-sharing.
