I’m sure students are already working on it
I foresee alot of giant distribution email lists in emails with “New Linux Distro version released … click [B][I][U]here[/U][/I][/B] to download the ISO via torrent” …
[QUOTE=iamrocket;2558023]BTW doesn’t the school rely on the tuition paid by the students they are turning in? And isn’t that why ISP’s object to turning in their customers who may use P2P?[/QUOTE]
I’d suggest that if any particular ISP’s could properly determine whether any user was [I][U]actually [/U][/I]infringing content with any reasonable degree of accuracy, they’d have given the the user warnings & kicked them off the network already. It’s generally in the ISP’s User Agreement that you won’t use their network for illegal activities.
People leeching content across the ISP’s infrastructure are a burden to the ISP’s infrastructure anyway, and cost the ISP $$$. The ISP wouldn’t shed any tears to kick off leeches, as it’s after the “Old granny that downloads 1MB per year checking her email” segment which is extremely profitable
And in addition, the RIAA/MPAA storming in and demanding the ISP provide details to sue their customers is a breach of privacy, and there’s no telling what sort of accuracy the RIAA/MPAA detection & logging system actually has … especially given their grossly inflated figures for loss of revenue … and the ISP would shed customers like a dog shedding winter hair, not to mention the class action lawsuits, if they rolled over and did whatever the RIAA/MPAA demanded.
