    ISU students among worst in movie piracy



    By Diane Heldt

    The Gazette

    AMES - Iowa State University students are among the worst offenders nationally when it comes to movie piracy, according to a recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education.

    The list of the 25 universities considered to be the ``worst offenders'' by the Motion Picture Association of America was released last month.

    The list was complied at the request of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary, and it's based on the number of copyright infringement notices received by the schools during the 2006-07 year. The infringement notices inform a college about students possibly illegally downloading copyrighted material.

    ISU's total of 586 copyright infringement notices ranked the university 15th nationally. ISU was the only Iowa college or university listed. Columbia University in New York City topped the list, with 1,198 notices.

    A similar list was released in February by the Recording Industry Association of America to measure the worst campus offenders for illegal music downloads. No Iowa college or university made that list of 25, which was topped by Ohio University with 1,287 infringement notices.

    That thing was the best! When they finally shut it down - wasn't about 80% of the student body using it? It had everything (movies, music, copies of Windows, etc.).

    Strange Search was awesome! My 80's music collection is still thankful to this day.

    You know, there's a possibility that we're only on this list because we actually have people enforcing the rule...I'm sure that there are a lot of other schools that are much more lax about reporting these kinds of things.

    Actually it said that it was based on the letter sent from the Movie companies to ISU - so we are just getting caught more.....maybe?

    If not, it should be a category in the Cy-Hawk Trophy from Hy Vee.

    I have got in trouble a few times from not downloading stuff the right way, but I only download tv shows if I happen to miss them.

    Just get AresLite and as soon as the song or movie is done downloading, just uncheck "share file"

    Re: ISU students among worst in movie piracy

    Iowa is not on the list because half of the student body in Iowa City doesn't know how to use a computer.

    Re: ISU students among worst in movie piracy

    I wear this designation as a badge of honor! Screw the RIAA and MPAA. And for those of you who remember Strange Search, it has been replaced, to some extent. A bunch of CpE's wrote a program called WASTE a few years back (I think you can a flavor of it on SourceForge) that's now used by a lot of students. It's basically just a p2p program, but the only way you can get into the network is to have someone else who's already in it (and knows what they're doing) set it up for you. Plus, since it's not web-based, all the transfer activity takes place *within* an individual building's network, which the network police can't see (they can only see in and out of a building). It's fantabulous.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
