DePauw's new partnership with MusicRebellion was formally announced yesterday. Dr. Trinkle says the agreement "will serve as a national model for how colleges and universities can address the problem of illegal downloading of music without restricting student choice. What this partnership creates is a way for DePauw to provide a venue for students to access the music they want: legally and conveniently. And, since MusicRebellion will be donating 1% of all sales back to DePauw for student scholarships, every time students buy music, they are helping themselves."
