While the file-sharing community fights against the annoying laws that are set against it, the outfit named Office of Information Technology began implementing new methods of discouraging and banning unauthorized downloads via file-sharing clients like FrostWire and LimeWire.
User services director for Office of Information Technology explained that the P2P problem with illegal file-sharing appeared a decade ago and had been a rising problem since. In colleges, about a thousand students are caught each semester.
Many of netizens know that Digital Millennium Copyright Act doesn’t allow copying or sharing copyright protected information without permission from the copyright owner. However, only a few people know that the Recording Industry Association of America now raids student campuses in attempts to catch the “wealthy” scholars red-handed. If the outfit finds any, it then notifies Office of Information Technology. As a result, the student would either have the possibility to remove all the unauthorized content from his PC or face the legal consequences. But that’s not everything – the student must hand-over his PC to the Computer Support Center in order to confirm that the content threatening to the economy has been deleted. He will also be shown a series of videos that teach him never to steal or lie again or download a book he can’t pay for.
Those who think this is all do not know the RIAA well. The student caught file-sharing then has to sign that he will comply with the conditions presented to him. Thanks God, they don’t require a lobotomy to sort out all file-sharing troubles at the end.
All of the above is applied to the student caught first time in his life. Now you can imagine what would happen to a habitual offender. If caught with unauthorized content again, a student will be deprived of his network privileges and even face the Student Conduct and Integrity for further action. Fortunately, no cutting anyone’s hands off is included into the scheme.
Office of Information Technology believes that students must understand how serious this crime is, and it doesn’t everything to keep young pirates from losing thousands of dollars in court fines. Since it’s usually freshmen who get caught, the outfit reminds that everyone should ensure he gets rid of all unauthorized downloaded software.
