Congress Targets P2P Piracy On Campus
from the uh-oh dept
Congress is starting to step into technology areas they don’t understand again, and it could get ugly. Members of the subcommittee that oversee copyright laws are angry that universities treat file sharing as a minor infraction. They point out that file sharing can be considered a federal crime and should be treated as such. What’s worse, is that these representatives are upset that no file sharing people have been charged yet with a federal crime.

You know these computer laws are getting way out of hand. A federal crime for sharing a file? I mean come on. With these laws, we would have just about everyone in jail. Why have a computer if you cannot share files? They are way too strict with these computer laws, and I think it stems out of lack of knowledge.
