P2P Copyright Issues

Copyright infringement is a violation of university policy and may result in university or legal action. Many users of peer-to-peer (P2P) sites and software programs unwittingly upload illegal files. P2P is disabled on the WPI network because of its high bandwidth costs and the vulnerabilities that expose the network to malware, malevolent programs and individuals.

A list of blocked services is available and users who have questions about exceptions, or believe something may be blocked inadvertantly should contact Information Security at itsecurity@wpi.edu.

For additional information please visit the WPI Copyright Compliance website.
