Deceptive Anti-Piracy Sofware Aimed at Parents

Wow! I'm all against media piracy but the Movie and Music industries are getting a little out of hand with their tactics. Not to mention that they don't care one whit about the artists like they claim. Now comes a story that anti-piracy software sponsored by the MPAA and aimed at parents does NOT separate out pirated movies and songs from legally obtained ones. So basically, a concerned parent worried their child might be pirating media uses this software on their computer and LO AND BEHOLD it finds all kinds of stuff! It asks to delete the stuff and the worried parent says yes. Now, all of this poor kids media is gone even if it was legal! This is just underhanded. Link is here.
