Copyright Infringement and Peer-to-Peer File Sharing Policies and Sanctions

Contact: General Counsel | Phone: (914) 594-4567

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 specifies that regulations be published and promulgated regarding institutional efforts to reduce illegal uploading and downloading of copyrighted work through peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing on campus networks. The final rules were published in September 2009 and are in effect on July 1, 2010.

The law requires three things:  

  1. Institutions are required to make an annual disclosure to inform students that illegal distribution of copyrighted materials may subject them to criminal may subject them to criminal and civil penalties and describes the steps that institutions will take to detect and punish illegal distribution of copyrighted materials.
  2. Institutions are required to certify to the Secretary of Education that they have developed plans to “effectively combat” the unauthorized distribution of copyrighted material. In developing these plans, institutions are required to consider the use of technology-based deterrents. Report language that accompanies the law explicitly states that technology-based deterrents include “bandwidth shaping” and “traffic monitoring to identify the largest bandwidth users,” and indicates that certain education and enforcement programs will also qualify.
  3. Institutions are required, “to the extent practicable,” to offer alternatives to illegal file sharing. Both the practicality and selection of alternatives are to be determined by the institution “in consultation with the chief technology officer or other designated officer of the institution.”

 

Compliance with Annual Disclosure

NYMC has approved a “File Sharing and Copyright Infringement Policy,” The policy is located at NYMC Copyright Infringement Policies.
