Entertainment industry execs are insane

Are entertainment industry execs insane? I caught this post over at CNET about a program called Digital File Check that scans your system for P2P software, disables it, and removes it. Then, as if that weren't enough, it removes any media files that it thinks are illegitimate.
Digital File Check is easy to use and can help people prevent their employees, children and others from illegally downloading and swapping movies.

Dan Glickman, president of the MPAA
Why would anybody in their right mind download this obvious piece of malware? Does anybody think that the RIAA is going to compensate you when Digital File Check "mistakenly" deletes your entire, legally ripped, CD collection? The site doesn't even have any verifying information, just an icon and a link.

Unbelievable!
