Film Studio Sends Hundreds of Letters Alleging Illegal Downloading to Colleges

Commentary by Stephen Downes

No word on whether the film studios are planning to compensate university officials for the work involved in tracking down students who allegedly share illicit copies of movies and videos. I wouldn't hold my breath. Nor, either, should the film industry. Going after the thousands - maybe millions - of people who share will take some time. And even if you find the computer, you have to be a bit careful about accusing the owner of an illegal act. University officials, unlike film studios, must follow due process and law.
