Ratware is legitimate software that upon your checking "yes" to the agreement and completing the install, begins to report back to it's maker. It may recognize the music patterns of a song and suddenly show you the album cover art. It may store your searchwords, monitor you website activities, your subscribed-to usenet groups, and your non DRM videos in order to "enhance your experience" build a model of your interests or to report you to the authorities in order to make an example of you. It may report system errors along with the nature of the files that caused the crash.
Richie, I'd be careful using that ratware music player. it kind of creeps me out how it suddenly either shows you the cover art or suggests other songs by that artist. You can rename the file qwerty.mp3 and it still knows its Aerosmith! That ratware crap is gonna report you DRM free shit man. be careful. You can go offline, but maybe it remembers and rats you out later. Microsoft, Google, the whole music and film industry are acting in concert developing ratware.

Joe I'm afraid to play my downloaded MP3 files while online. Its kind of creepy the way this ratware pulls up the album cover art. Who knows what else it can pull out of my stuff. Maybe this DRM ratware even remembers what I played while offline and waits when I get back on to report me. It's as bad as a keylogger. Microsoft, google and Sony are cohorts in developing this DRM ratware crap.
