Consider Your Downloading Habits
Downloading and sharing music, movies and apps is a part of student life. If you shared your music, movie or app library at home, please close/turn off sharing before coming to campus. Otherwise, you could inadvertently share your library with thousands via the Carnegie Mellon network, which is a violation of the university’s Computing Policy.
IMPORTANT: When requested, Carnegie Mellon is legally required to provide information about individuals who appear to be illegally downloading and distributing copyrighted materials (e.g., music, movies and apps) on our network.
When downloading or sharing files, please consider the following:
- Close/turn off sharing of your music, movies or apps before arriving on campus.
- Consider disabling file sharing for other applications when you are not using them.
- Review the Copyright Violation Guideline.
