Session Abstract

The combination of peer-to-peer networking, 10/100 Ethernet ports as the standard mode of Internet access on campus, and vigilant RIAA monitoring of compliance with the Digital Millenium Copyright Act has led to a bewildering intermixture of politics, law, and technology at many American universities. Is bandwidth a scarce resource that needs to be rationed? How can technology be used to encourage appropriate Internet behavior and usage? How do universities remain leaders in providing a bandwidth-rich Internet environment for faculty, students, and staff? Speakers from Cornell University, a center for law and computer policy, and Michigan State University, which has the largest residence hall system in the country, will address these important issues. The chairs of the Internet2 Working Groups on Campus Bandwidth Management and Peer-to-Peer Networking will bring the perspectives of these working groups to the session.
