An anonymous reader writes: Lawmakers are considering a bill that would prohibit peer-to-peer file sharing programs from being installed onto computers without consent. The P2P Cyber Protection and Information User Act will also require software developers to inform people when their files are made available to others via peer-to-peer networks.
Authority would be given to the Federal Trade Commission to enforce the act.
