Students who download media or share files on University of Montana computers may be in for a rude awakening.
Such was the case for Michael Hughes, a student who got a letter from the University this June accusing him of downloading a movie and an album on his personal computer, which he had hooked up to UM’s wireless network.
“It said that the University had been contacted by the Recording Industry Association of America, and they had found that two things had been
downloaded … and they traced it back to the University,” Hughes said.
