Italy's anti-piracy organization FPM is to target parents in a forthcoming campaign highlighting the dangers of peer-to-peer piracy. Rather than concentrating on copyright issues, the campaign will emphasize the risks of encountering pedophile material, which FPM warns is increasingly being distributed through illegal P2P platforms.

In recent months, members of Guardia di Finanza, Italy's fiscal police, reported 160 individuals for distributing pedophile material via the Kazaa service.

A separate investigation by members of Italy's Carabinieri law enforcement agency revealed that several hundred computer users were exchanging pedophile material via WinMix, E-Mule, Kazaa and IMesh.
