bitTorrent at college?

What say you, are any of you/have any of you shared non-copywritten music at school. Any ideas regarding what I should do for the next 4 years? UMass seems to have a bTnazi-esque program and the network is being watched by RIAA because too many people use Kazaa and LimeWire to share eMPty3 files. I just want to jam out, and the tech nerds will harsh my buzz.... what are your thoughts?

Get off campus housing as soon as possible...... not just for your BT.

Re: bitTorrent at college?

agreed on the off-campus housing. the dorms are good for one year's experience, but after that, the apt is a very nice thing, for so many reasons.

as for bt, i would read the t&c/etc very carefully. i know they are very careful about bw usage, and if the riaa is apparently watching traffic, then i'd be careful. i know i helped baylor setup their monitoring program (i uploaded probably 2-3tb to irc in 2 semesters, the next year they had a t&c and monitoring/access program and everything) thats all in the past now, my jolly roger is retired.
The critics of the Information Age see everything in the negative, as if the quantity of information can lead to a loss of meaning. They said the same thing about Gutenberg.
