Ten ways to combat illegal file sharing

“If institutions don’t start planning on a sound compliance plan, the issue won’t go away; instead, colleges and universities will be held even more accountable,” reiterated Arbogast. “The industry will come back even stronger, because after all, their material is being stolen. They will also lobby for stricter legislation.”

Arbogast listed four actions institutions can take immediately to become more compliant, even if concrete implementation hasn’t started:

  1. Collaborate with key stakeholders to determine the definition of compliance as it relates to your campus.
  2. Create a plan that includes both technical and educational components to comply with both the letter and spirit of the law.
  3. Create a timeline for completion and follow it through.
  4. Talk with others outside the campus for advice and help, such as organizations, vendors, and other institutions.
