Democrats: Colleges must police copyright, or else

Democrats: Colleges must police copyright, or else | CNET News.com
It is the responsibility of universities and colleges to teach our kids and promote thought and discussion, not police what the students or staff are doing on the Internet.

What is worse is that they are threatening them by withholding their federal financial aide.  For all the schools, this is a big deal.

But in reality it is the students who are getting the shaft by the Democrats.  For schools to meet the requirements that the Democrats are proposing, they will have to sign-on to subscription services like Ruckus or Napster.

Well how will pay for this?  Not the schools.  The students will end up footing the bill for this.  And if the schools don’t, then the students will get the shaft when the schools lose their federal financial aide.

The MPAA and RIAA are definitely in favor of this.  But they like going after the little people and focusing all their energy on criminalizing their customers instead of looking for innovative ways to distribute their content so people will have incentive to not illegally download content.

Whenever the MPAA and RIAA call on Capital Hill, Congress says what ever you want, we will give it to you.  This needs to stop!
