Music Download - Peer to Peer Policy

Peer to Peer (P2P) is given the lowest priority and is also heavily limited.  This means there will be extremely slow downloads and problems connecting with other peers; however, the P2P traffic is not “Educational” by its very nature and is considered to be almost entirely illegal.  P2P is an incredible consumer of bandwidth, and no matter how much bandwidth is available, it would never be enough.  In the past, P2P traffic (Bit Torrent, Morpheus, Kaaza, Napster, Gnutella, AudioGalaxy, etc.) consumed such quantities of bandwidth that the legitimate educational uses of not only the residential network, but also the total Cameron University network suffered.

Regarding the legality of P2P traffic, if Cameron University receives any violations from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), MPA (Motion Picture Association), or any other industries, those violations will be investigated, and all documentation will be turned over to Student Housing / Student Affairs.
