Submission + - Stanford kowtows to **AA campaign

Gogl writes: "With RIAA (read: Sony et al.) "pre-litigation" threats looming, Stanford has decided to (warning, PDF) pass the costs down to the students "who are jeopardizing the Stanford network by using it as platform to steal songs, movies, TV shows, video games, books and software." DMCA violations will result in a network disconnection, with reconnection costing $100 the first time, $500 the second, and $1000 the third. Stands in pretty sharp contrast to the stance taken by the Harvard law professor discussed here earlier."

Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggy" until you can find a rock.
