RIAA win: Tennessee to police campus networks

EFF IN THE NEWS

Tennessee has agreed to filter computer networks for unauthorized music downloads at the state's colleges and universities...

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, an Internet-user advocacy group, called the law "ridiculous," and said the costs of enforcing it would top $9 million.

"The entertainment industry lobby seems to be succeeding, bit-by-bit in persuading legislators to coerce universities into buying 'infringement suppression' technologies," the EFF said in a blog post, adding that these technologies are expensive and "won't stop file sharing on campus networks."
