Penn State Cracks Down On File Sharing
from the lose-your-internet-connection dept
Penn State has decided to become the RIAA’s policeman and has cut off internet access for 220 students they caught offering music for file sharing online. The article makes it sound like this wasn’t even a case where they were using any file sharing program – but were, instead, connecting directly to each others computers (to avoid using up their University-mandated bandwidth limits). I wonder how carefully each student’s computer was checked to prove they really were sharing files illegally.

Does anyone else see this comming?:
Uni. students who have been cut off buy a $35 wireless card for their computers and build a mesh network (http://www.locustworld.net) around the blocks in the university network.
Carefull, there’s power in numbers and expendable “income”.
