Attn: College Kids That Like To Download

Posted by: Julia Conny (08/01/08)
Colleges may soon be required to "provide students with commercial music downloading services and implement traffic filtering technologies in order to deter peer-to-peer filesharing."

Kids will find a way.

And if you haven't stopped using Limewire, then you should be picked up the RIAA.

Oh they will, which is why it's pointless, a waste of money, unless it's the RIAA is funding it, but I'm assuming the costs will fall on students/states.

And yes anyone who didn't leave Limewire behind years ago deserves it.

A good friend of mine from school just downloaded Limewire. She called me after she downloaded one song and said she was afraid she might get in trouble, I think I laughed for a good 10 minutes.

My school blocks any sort of P2P traffic already so it's not like this is a new concept or anything. Yes, you are paying for the internet and should be able to do whatever you want but the school has to protect themselves as the RIAA has went after colleges before. It's like there are two sides and both are right.

word

I still love having people come into my job and going umm my computer is acting funny. And then all I have to do is go.Do you or anyone else in the house download music? And usally they all go yes and they they say we use this program called Limewire.And I got there is your problem.

Really I think anyone who uses that fucking program earned all those trojans and virus that are killing there computer. And they should remain limewire to viruswire.

OU blocks/polices it too. A girl I was dating last year dled a song on Limewire in the dorms (even though I warned her not to) and her internet was disconnected within minutes. It was quite impressive actually.
