We previously reported that under a new law this summer, universities benefiting from federal funds must increase to the maximum their efforts to stop illegal file sharing. According to Jim Lowe, the UW’s chief information security officer, the entertainment industry sends about 3,000 “cease and desist” orders to the school each year.

While, allegedly, the system works pretty well and most cases are dealt with efficiently, the UW has also adopted a new strategy for students who refuse to make the payment as demanded by the record and film companies. This will sound annoyingly familiar to you as it is called – the “three strikes” policy. That’s right, the model will be used on students as well. First, the students will be given a standard “cease and desist” order; if they fail to comply they will be sent a second letter from the Dean of Students, followed by a personal meeting as a third step. Everything is well thought-out with universities being well motivated to apply the scheme – if they fail to deter file sharing among students they risk losing the federal funds.

Did somebody mention blackmail?  :gum:

Its well documented that most of theses media group claims are automated and not legally worth the paper they are printed on, what we are seeing here is a false claim being used to deny folks an education and worse a stick being given to the media industries to wave at those education establishments who refuse to purchase any anti p2p system the media groups have a stake in, corruption at its worst

Are those education establishments aware of this 'automated deception'?

And who says the file sharing is illegal?

I aint seen a law yet that prohibits file-sharing

Has anyone actually examined the traffic content?
