This short video helps students understand the risks of violating copyright law by using peer-to-peer file sharing programs to distribute music, movies, games, or software.

Cornell University does not monitor its networks for content as a practice, but content owners use automated detection systems that target Cornell Internet Protocol addresses for violations of their copyrights.

All students should be sure to uninstall file share programs before connecting to the Cornell network anywhere on campus, whether via a wired or Wi-Fi connection (RedRover, RedRover-Secure, or eduroam).
