University of Illinois Disconnects Pirating Students

Pirating college students given a punishment worse than internet access. eek!

The University of Illinois is taking complaints from copyright holders very seriously by disconnecting pirating students’ Internet connections upon the first warning. After being sanctioned by a hearing officer students are allowed to come back online, but after the third strike they lose their Internet access permanently. University employees are also reprimanded, with one staffer asked to look for a new job after several alleged infringements.
