EU to monitor anti-piracy trial

UK- The software CView by Virgin Media will be used to identify legal versus illegal traffic on its software.  Virgin Media said that it will pose no risk to privacy.  However, some say that it is a breach of current UK law and are more than willing to file a criminal complaint if Virgin Media deploys the software.

The uK government is in the process of creating legislation that could see illegal file-sharers identified and, potentially, thrown off the network.  Still, Virgin Media says their software will not do that job, since it was never designed to capture identities.  Instead the software will be used to identify how much traffic on its network is illegal.
