Showdown Over File Sharing

Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed, Jul 23, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Things may change in the U.S. Senate but the homage to the RIAA continues as legislators look at ways to bend colleges to the will of the music industry. This article looks at recent initiatives, including the recent move by the University of Kanasas to permanently terminate student Resnet access after a single instance of "downloading copyright material". Well worth reading is the first comment in response to the article where Kenneth C. Green of the Campus Computing Project srgues that "the comments by Mitch Bainwol, chairman and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America, misrepresent the RIAA's own data on who is engaged in illegal downloading and which (broadband) networks are being used for illegal downloading."
