Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Files Sharing
Tarleton State University is a strong proponent of copyright law and other protections for intellectual property rights. We depend on such laws to protect the fruits of our research and teaching activities.
Tarleton actively supports awareness about copyright and cooperates with copyright holders who believe that illegal distribution is occurring on our university networks. Unfortunately, the university still receives notices from copyright holders such as the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) who actively search for illegal file sharing of music or other copyrighted material.
Sharing materials through these programs is a violation of The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998-DMCA.
