Illegal downloading

You might have noticed a few messages around campus recently regarding the downloading of movies, music, tv shows etc. using services such as Limewire and BitTorrent.

The message that we're trying to get across is that doing this is not ok, for a few really good reasons:

» without permission from the copyright owner, it's illegal
» because it's illegal, you could be prosecuted
» you are likely exposing your laptop, and the Bond network, to viruses

Accordingly, using the Bond network to download copyright material using one of these services is a breach of the Student Acceptable Use of ICT Facilities Policy, and may result in disciplinary action, and having your IT account suspended.

A serious, but important, message.
