"When youths report to the authorities that movies, songs, television programs or other copyrighted material is being made available through an Internet posting, customs officials will verify the posting and then relay it to trade groups like the Motion Picture Association or the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. The associations and their members then send warning letters to the Webmasters of the discussion forums, asking them to delete the offending posting; the customs officials keep secret which child has spotted which posting."
