Anonymously written freeware lets YOU bust a Napster/Gnutella user. Anonymously written by the RIAA, no doubt.

of different media to put the responsibility back to the offending users. The current version supports Napster and Gnutella services ...

giving you enough identifying information to either submit a ban on the users from the service

How do you Ban a Gnutella user?

NOTE: The public version of the Media Enforcer software does have limits- the
Napster service will not return user names, and the Gnutella service will return
incorrect IP addresses. This is done so Media Enforcer will remain a tool for
anti-piracy, and not a piracy search tool.

For a copy of the full version, simply email us with a short description of who you
are and your intended use of the software. We will evaluate the request, and
respond promptly.

Yeah, this looks really useful. I feel payware coming up....

There's been some mention of this over at Wired News, too. Some stuff about the guy who wrote it starts near the bottom of the first page.
