Analysis: RIAA wants universities to do its dirty work

The recording industry has continued to ratchet up its war against peer-to-peer file sharing, and lately it has been working overtime to draft universities into the fight...

A better solution is the one proposed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation in a recent report: instead of transforming college campuses into a miniature surveillance state, record labels and universities could enter into a collective licensing agreement under which the university would pay a flat fee to the record labels in exchange for the right to utilize peer-to-peer applications on campus.
