Every year, the U.S. loses billions in revenue due to piracy. A vast amount of these loses are owed to students downloading music and movies for free from several websites that are at fault themselves. Just think of the hundreds and thousands of jobs that could have been created by the money lost and how many raises could have been given.
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing is the primary way students are pirating music and movies. With the newer generations becoming more and more technology savvy, this form of P2P file sharing has become an overwhelming problem.
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) is requiring that universities put together a plan to inform and/or educate their faculty, staff and students on the laws of copyright infringement and how to use P2P file sharing properly. Listed below, are our plans to assist in the effort against copyright infringement.
