Georgia College’s New Policy — Reporting All P2P Users To the Police

November 15th, 2010 11:14 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader excerpts from an article at TorrentFreak: “Georgia’s Valdosta State University has updated its network with software that can pinpoint students who use P2P software. The university is committed to stop file-sharing on its network even if that results in prison sentences for students. Offenders will be disciplined by the school and then handed over to the police, the university has announced.” School policy is one thing (“don’t use file-sharing software on our resource-constrained network, or we may kick you off”), but I suspect the police wouldn’t appreciate the task of sorting out legal from illegal use of widespread, essentially neutral software tools.
