Stanford’s response to piracy on University networks

Stanford University has received so many notices of copyright infringement by students on it’s network that it has developed a new process for dealing with it:

1st offence – 48 hours to get rid of the material or face disconnection followed by a $100 fine to reconnect

2nd offence – disconnection and bigger fine to reconnect

3rd offence – all network privileges removed, discipline and $1000 fine for reconnection

 This is clearly a success for the move, which I think was started a few months ago by the RIAA, from noticing students directly to noticing the students via the college.
