How many more years of this before other industries like software (SecuROM anyone?) come away with the obvious conclusion as well? DRM doesn't do anything but restrict legitimate purchasers of the product, people who illegally obtain things don't have to deal with such inane restrictions
I get a "security error" when I try to view the actual picture from that website...anyone have another link?
Students already pay for the "services" we use...a huge number of CMU and UPitt students live off-campus after their freshman year, which means all utilities/etc are taxed normally. These schools also charge their students $40/year (which goes to the city) to allow students to get onto city buses for "free" anytime. Student life is hard enough as it is, This is just an asinine short-sighted attempt to make some quick cash. If this gets enacted universities and students are going to remember it for a long, long time. I'm sure the damage to the city's reputation is going to take a much worse hit than the simple increase in revenue.
