RIAA attempts to squash filesharing on college campuses (again)

post #1 of 3

Quote:
In its latest attempt to decrease local network filesharing at universities, the RIAA has sent letters to 40 university presidents in 25 states informing them that *gasp* filesharing occurs on their campuses. These letters are a part of the RIAA's new "systematic program to identify and curtail" LAN filesharing. Citing commonly used filesharing applications like DC++ and OurTunes, the RIAA claims that students are turning to local networks in order to avoid the risks of detection associated with using the public Internet. Apparently, local network piracy at schools is a major concern for the RIAA.

Im all for the getting rid of piracy, but the steps they are taking are just way to drastic. Everyday when i visit bittorrent, I hear of another person getting investigated by the riaa that is dead or doesn't even own a computer. They need to relax, and the law that says you can face up to 10 years in prison, more then if you assault someone.

Can they really do anything since it's not going anywhere but somewhere else on the campus.
