For all you illegal downloaders.

I got an email today from my university president about illegal downloads. Here it is;

"Dear Students,

The IT Department at SWOSU and my office have a new internet warning for you as we approach a new semester. It is called a "Violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act - RIAA Infringement." It is based on and in support of the laws which say you cannot illegally download music, movies or other "copyrighted" materials.

In the past when illegal downloading was monitored by the different external agencies, they would send me a notice of the residence hall or apartment complex from which it was done. I would then do a warning to that building.

The technology now exists and is being used to drill down and send me the student's e-mail address, whether it is hotmail, @student.SWOSU, or any other provider. They also may now directly prosecute the student, as the responsible party.

I'm your dean in good times and bad and I always have chocolate...but this one is now out of my hands and directly and responsibly in yours.

Again, I am just passing on a warning. Illegal downloading by you, on campus or off, now has nothing to do with the university. It can and will be traced to you by name, e-mail address and location, and according to the Abuse Response Team at abuse@onenet.net, it will be prosecuted.

Be legal and happy new year. - Dean Dougherty

P.S. During the past year, they sent 4,400 letters of "prosecution intent" to 158 schools nationwide giving students the option to settle out of court for $3,000 to $5,000 per infraction or song. Students have 20 days to respond or be sued by RIAA. For this to take place, the university doesn't have to confirm delivery or provide the students' name. "

So, instead of your president just warning you it's now a fine?

Gotta suck.

I think the RIAA can do this anywhere but universities are big targets, I am not sure.

I know it's not right to steal music or movies without paying and giving the original source credit. But not everyone has to money to fill their iPod up with 300 songs

I occasionally do buy songs from I tunes but it's just too damn expensive.

Also iTunes doesn't carry artists like Tool and others
Ahh I don't know what to say.


I use to use Morpheus P2P and then for some reason when I upgraded it it doesn't allow me to download anything because it's stolen.

So I use LimeWire now

I use limewire for songs, yet I am really paranoid about DLing movies elsewhere. I did it once on limewire but I got a virus, then I went to torrentspy, but they won't let American IP's DL because they are being monitored and don't want to get there ppls in trouble. For some reason I am not afraid of torrenting songs, yet I am movies... its weird.

If any of you know of any good places though PM me =P

I know a couple people on my campus that got busted for something similar, don't know if it was for slowing down the server or just being illegal.

Thank God I got an apartment right now, with decent webernets. Isn't downloading somewhat legal for all Canadians?
