Boston College Says Using WiFi Is a Sign of Infringement

Piracy

An anonymous reader writes “Boston College has a funny idea of what constitutes copyright infringement. It has a list of what might be called ‘you might be a copyright infringer if…’ with the sort of things you might expect, such as using file sharing programs or sending mp3s to friends. But some have noticed something odd. Included on the list is using a wireless router in your dorm. Yes, just using a wireless router. Not using it for anything. But just using such a router is considered a sign of infringement. Nice to see our top colleges and universities teaching students completely made up things.”
