    An online movie distributor this week said it will try to sell videos
using Gnutella's file-sharing software, issuing a challenge not only for itself, but
for the company that has promised to protect files from piracy on the
notoriously insecure network: Microsoft.

Pennsylvania-based today said it plans to enlist
Gnutella for commercial purposes--software that most
copyright holders view as a dangerous tool
for illegal copying. The experiment will carry SightSound's
full-length feature movie content into the belly of the
piracy beast under the protection of Microsoft's digital rights
management (DRM) system.
