This is going around the net this week. I don't know if MSU is one of the Universities that received the letter. FYI
"The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture
Association of America (MPAA) have sent letters to 40 US universities in a
bid to control illegal file-swapping on campus.
Both the RIAA and the MPAA acknowledged that the colleges have made efforts
to curb illegal file-sharing on local area networks (Lans), but said more
action was needed."
