Now that school is kicking back into effect, you might be curious what the RIAA and universities are doing to battle P2P downloading applications. Ars Techinca wraps up several colleges' new policies and plans of action in this article.
I love how none of these morons realize that 80% of piracy is totally friends sending music to one another (AIM, SendSpace, YouSendIt, etc.) I may be a few years out of college but I'd be willing to guess that your average 19-year-old dumbass can't usually wrap his head around how a torrent works or how to use IRC channels/Usenet effectively.
OU had the limewire stuff on campus pretty locked down for awhile last year. I tried to warn a girl I was dating not to use it and her internet/cable was disconnected about 5 minutes after she dled one song. It was actually kind of funny.
I got busted last school year. There weren't any serious repercussions; my internet was turned off for 4 days and I had to take an online quiz. As soon as I took the quiz, the internet was turned back on. Since then, I've found better ways of doing things...I refuse to do it at school, though. A little paranoid now.
