(A) of distributing songs and full-length recordings on the Internet that will protect copyright holders and foil the many audio pirates who copy and distribute - Correct. Here 'that' refers to 'a standardized way'. In this case, 'that' jumps over the prepositional phrase 'of distributing songs and full-length recordings on the Internet' and modifies 'standardized way'

(B) of distributing songs and full-length recordings on the Internet and to protect copyright holders and foiling the many audio pirates copying and distributing - Parallelism error. 'to create' and 'to protect' are parallel, but what is 'foiling' and 'distributing' parallel to?

(C) for distributing songs and full-length recordings on the Internet while it protects copyright holders and foils the many audio pirates who copy and distribute - Meaning shift.

(D) to distribute songs and full-length recordings on the Internet while they will protect copyright holders and foil the many audio pirates copying and distributing - Meaning shift + Pronoun error

(E) to distribute songs and full-length recordings on the Internet and it will protect copyright holders and foiling the many audio pirates who copy and distribute - Parallelism error.

look at choice B. it is clear that foiling is not paralell with protect and is wrong
but, there are another meaning error, 'to protect" in B is parallel with "to create' . this loosen the logic combination between ideas in choice B .
the correct sentence must have close logic combination of ideas in the sentence.
