Several of the copyright complaints that we have received are tracking back to ios devices. As we investigate these, we are finding no reason to suspect that the infringement has occurred. I am wondering if any other schools are experiencing this?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

With the exception of one errant copyright complaint (turned out to be a mistake that we cannot determine how it was identified) all our infringement notifications (through only one of our two ISPs) have been legitimate and have been iOS platforms. As 90% of our campus is Mac this appears to make sense. We identify the offending individual by machine and login, call the individual to my office for a conversation and verify the offending material is indeed on their laptop, have them delete the material and sign a pledge indicating that they will "never do it again". As an art school the conversation goes something like this: "you are an artist? At some point in your lifetime you are going to want to be compensated for the creative work you produce? So too do the professionals whose work you took without appropriate compensation to the artist." It works very well. In the five years of having these infringement conversations I have only had one repeat. We average about 25 to 35 infringement notifications a year. Tom Thomas H.

One other comment: iOS could be just the one doing the access... ever heard of tethering?
