Bruin Success with Less Stress

Students Getting Sued?

Eddie: Students at different universities set up a file sharing program so they could share music and other stuff online. Carlos: Oh, like Napster, KaZaa, PeerBuddy and those kind of things?

They already have.

These kinds of legal cases are still pretty new and the law is developing as more and more cases are brought to court. But for now, if you download music or other copyrighted materials without paying for it, you just may end up in the poorhouse.
