Washington Times Mentions DePauw in Story on Colleges & Music Downloads
August 26, 2004
August 26, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - "An increasing number of colleges and universities are trying to curb music piracy by giving students access to digital music from ITunes, Napster and other legitimate sites," writes William Glanz in yesterday's Washington Times. The story points out that DePauw University is one of "at least 20 schools [that] have agreements to let students download music, according to a report submitted [August 24] to Congress by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Joint Committee of the Higher Education and Entertainment Communities. More of the nation's 3,300 colleges and universities are likely to form alliances with music sites as higher education tries to keep students off peer-to-peer networks like Kazaa and prevent them from becoming ensnared in the legal net cast nearly a year ago by the record labels."
