"the EFF and other organizations Are fighting back, but the Universities themselves never will because most rely on money from corporations to stay in business.
The real hope has to come from students themselves, to realize they must band together and Fight Back."
Unless they want to go on to work for those corporations. In fact it's probably true to say that a lot of those **AA drones dubbed a tape or two back in the day. They didn't think it was wrong at the time but now they're getting paid to get outraged by P2P. The morality of students (or the rest of us) hasn't changed but the ease of infringement has. They're years behind the loop in technology so all they can do is wield the familiar old Hammer Of Litigation to smack the students about (and the students are easy targets because of their housing blocks and on site internet connections). Nobody is really in the right here but I believe that if you're going to steal stuff off the Internet you should call it like it is and be prepared to pay the fine if you do the crime. I steal the odd TV show off BT but I'm not a freedom fighter I'm just impatient and cheap. If the letter comes asking for a settlement I'd do the righteous thing and fish a bundle of crisp hundreds out my back pocket and mail it to them.
