Letter Opposing The Illegal File Sharing Amendment to the HEA Sent by the Higher Education Members of the Joint Committee
Monday, July 23, 2007
This letter states the higher education community's grave concerns about a proposed amendment to the Higher Education Act developed by the entertainment industry. This letter describes how this amendment would establish the Secretary of Education as an agent of the entertainment industry by requiring the Secretary annually to create a list of the 25 colleges and universities with the highest levels of unauthorized peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing based on data supplied by the industry.
