Submission + - Survey shows colleges serious about copyright (

An anonymous reader writes: According to survey results published yesterday, colleges and universities take copyright issues and P2P traffic very seriously, despite claims to the contrary.

Some in Congress have accused schools of turning a blind eye "to the theft of the creative works of others," but only one of the respondents said his or her school didn't have a bandwidth policy in place and all of the schools said that they had someone designated to handle DMCA complaints. The results also chip away at the logic behind legislation such as last month's education bill that would require schools to develop education plans warning students about the dangers of infringement and to evaluate technological countermeasures. It appears that schools are doing exactly that.

The raw survey data is also available.
