Illegal File Sharing
Back in 2008, the United States Congress passed and President Obama signed the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA), which provides funding for federal financial aid programs, as well as other higher education funding and requirement changes. Part of this Act included new requirements for colleges to notify all students regarding the illegality of sharing files covered under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998. This message shall serve as Anoka Technical College’s official notice to all enrolled students.
This notice is directed to ALL Anoka Technical College students and does NOT mean that you have done anything wrong related to illegal file sharing. It is simply a required notice.
Downloading or distributing copyrighted material, including through peer-to-peer file sharing, without the permission of the copyright owner is against the law. Illegal downloading or distribution of copyrighted materials can result in you being prosecuted in criminal court and/or sued for damages in civil court. Criminal penalties for first-time offenders can be as high as five years in prison and $250,000 in fines. If sued in civil court, you may be responsible for monetary damages, attorneys' fees and civil penalties up to $150,000 per work distributed. Use of Anoka Technical College technology resources (including accessing the Anoka Technical College wired or wireless network from your personal computer) for unauthorized distribution of copyrighted materials is prohibited.
By your use of Anoka Technical College technology resources, you formally acknowledge that you have been informed of the rules regarding illegal file sharing and the consequences that can come from inappropriate use of computers and network resources belonging to Anoka Technical College.
If Anoka Technical College receives information about suspected illegal file sharing, the student will be contacted via their Anoka Technical College student e-mail account and asked to sign and return a form notifying them that they have participated in an illegal activity. Failure to return the signed form and/or repeated infractions by the same student will result in student code of conduct notification and associated penalties, including possible restriction from using Anoka Technical College technology resources.
