où, je vous signale : 

Jail Time For P2P Developers? 

Où l'on apprend qu'une proposition de loi vient d'être faite en Californie 
pour que, en gros, les développeurs de logiciels P2P qui n'auront pas pris 
toutes les mesures appropriées pour empêcher l'utilisation de leur logiciel à 
des fins illicites (contrefaçon, distribution de contenus pornos à des 
mineurs, fraude informatique) risque une amende de 2,500$ 
et/ou un an de prison (en plus des dommages et interêts éventuels)

Le "machin" :

Ci-dessous un extrait :

(a) Any person or entity that sells, offers for sale, advertises, distributes, 
disseminates, provides, or otherwise makes available peer-to-peer file 
sharing software that enables its user to electronically disseminate 
commercial recordings or audiovisual works via the Internet or any other 
digital network, and who fails to exercise reasonable care in preventing use 
of that software to commit an unlawful act with respect to a commercial 
recording or audiovisual work[...] is punishable, [...]

(b) As used in this section, "peer-to-peer file sharing software" means 
software that once installed and launched, enables the user to connect his or 
her computer to a network of other computers on which the users of these 
computers have made available recording or audiovisual works for electronic 
dissemination to other users who are connected to the network. When a 
transaction is complete, the user has an identical copy of the file on his or 
her computer and may also then disseminate the file to other users connected 
to the network.
