Starting next week, UC Berkeley students will receive a stern warning from the university about the perils of music file sharing. They’ll be warned they can lose their Internet access or get slapped with a costly copyright infringement lawsuit if they aren’t careful about uploading and downloading files using programs like Kazaa. University of California officials sent a memo advising all chancellors to send a message to all campus communities. Stanford sent a similar message to faculty and students in May. According to most school officials, the RIAA is playing hard ball and the universities are warning students “for their own good.”

  1. We use a Packet Shaper to block use of Kazaa and other P2P outright. Everyone hates it, but it’s better than the university getting sued by the RIAA.
