P2P File Sharing

Ohio University currently restricts illegal peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing on our campus network. You still may use P2P technologies for legitimate purposes like gaming, open source downloads, and licensed distribution of media files; however, using P2P software to violate copyright law carries a number of possible sanctions, including loss of Internet access, referral to the appropriate internal disciplinary process, and even civil or criminal charges.
