Universities File Complaints Against RIAA Investigator

Record_Player_2_Clipart.jpgAll those RIAA lawsuits are beginning to take a toll not just on the students being sued, but the universities they attend as well. A new Slashdot post reports that there are now at least three complaints being investigated in Michigan against the RIAA’s unlicensed investigator, SafeNet (also known as MediaSentry), one of which was filed by Central Michigan University itself.

The report said that two other complaints have been filed by students, one from Northern Michigan University and one from University of Michigan. “This appears to be part of the “growing sense of exasperation colleges and universities are feeling over the RIAA’s harassment,” the report said. Could an end to the madness be close at hand?
