What does MAAgent.exe do? Is this spyware?

I just noticed this entry in my startup, "C:\program files\MarkAny\ContentSafer\

The reference is for this is:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
Run

Is MAAgent.exe a trojan horse or spyware?  I have run Ewido, Spybot, Adaware and Avast, and it shows my computer as being clean.

Doesn't 'look' like spyware what I've seen...

Did you install some proprietary music/video/images DRM reliant application? www.markany.com seems to be a DRM solution.

Yes, I just purchased a Samsung MP3 player, and installed their software.  

I could not identify it, even with a google search, so thank you all for your responses.  I appreciate it.
