I agree with the statement, something needs to be done about pirating music and dvds. I think the p2p programs should be shut down - that would solve the problem

Will the RIAA pay up? Doubtful, but this sends a clear message that the U of N isn't going to put up with their BS. First the ISPs, now the colleges. You just can't find an institution that'll bend over and take it, can you, RIAA?

Good. A college that is taking a stand. Hopefully other colleges will follow and show the RIAA that no one wants to bend over and get it up the you-know-where.

Hahaha. That's good though, when I'm at college I don't want the RIAA's figurative nose up my ass all the time.

There's no way they can shut down P2P programs. VCR lawsuit. It has legal uses, therefore it is legal.

lol wow.... i'm sure we could just tell the RIAA that your simply downloading the music as a backup for a friend online that you've never met before. afterall, backing things up is legal

they cant i bet 50%+ of the torrents and P2P downloads are located on servers in 3rd world countrys who dont inforce international copyright laws. whats the US and UK goverment going to do about the servers in other countrys
ill admit i download music for free but why come after a kid who downloads a song a week. they shouldnt crack down on the downloaders but the uploaders. i NEVER upload.
