The Joint Committee of the Higher Education and Entertainment Communities was formed in December 2002 to address problems arising from the perceived high volume of unauthorized peer-to-peer file sharing taking place on college campuses. The committee is organized into three Task Forces: Technology, Education, and Legislation.
In previous project briefings, we have focused on the activities of the Technology Task Force. In this briefing, we will emphasize the other two. The Education Task Force has recently developed a white paper describing policies and practices that have been adopted at campuses around the country aimed at eliminating, limiting, and/or punishing P2P file sharing. We will review that document as well as other ongoing work of the Joint Committee.
