The Campus Costs of P2P Compliance
Monday, October 20, 2008
This paper reports the results of a summer 2008 survey designed to address the campus costs of compliance with the new P2P filesharing mandates in reauthorized Higher Education Act (HEA) that was signed into law on August 14, 2008. The report is based data from 321 colleges and universities and focuses on P2P compliance costs as reflected in expenditures (e.g., content and software licenses) and also the time that campus personnel spend on P2P filesharing issues.
