Student gets PC confiscated for distributing MP3s
Author: JT Smith
The RIAA confiscated a student's PC and peripherals and intends to proscute for the spreading of MP3s. "He was advocating other people to download the music and upload music he didn't have," said James Alexander, an OSU assistant director. "He'd been advertising in chat rooms and we decided to notify the police." Discussion and link courtesy of Slashdot.
