p2p crisis calms in American colleges
The crisis over p2p usage in American colleges and universities appears to be calming down a bit. Fears of copyright infringement and bandwidth crunching have given way to software implementations, education (aptly!), and some pragmatism.

As blogged earlier in this Relay, such a relaxation might have something to do with college piracy dropping off.


One surprising note:

    Jonathan Lamy, a spokesman for the RIAA, said that for now the group is sticking to a hands-off approach on campuses, allowing individual schools to set their own policies. .."What we do is educate colleges and universities about copyright infringements, but we leave it to each school to decide what specific measures they will take against the unauthorized distribution of copyrighted work over the Internet," he said.
