A human rights watchdog has asked the European Commission to assess the legality of software being used to analyse file-sharing in the UK.
The software in question is called CView and will be used by ISP Virgin Media to identify legal versus illegal traffic on its network.
The EC has said it will monitor the use of the software, following a complaint from Privacy International.
