Policy on Peer-to-Peer File Sharing

The latest issue of The Ticker runs a headline story, "Staff PC Seized by BCTC," that cautions faculty and staff about the consequences of peer-to-peer or p2p file sharing. Anyone engaging in peer-to-peer file sharing poses a security risk to the college network and faces confiscation of their computer. They could also encounter legal trouble by downloading music or video that violates copyright. To find out more about peer-to-peer file sharing and CUNY's p2p policy see the File Sharing and Copyright Infringement Advisory at the BCTC web site.
