Filesharing with shared computers may equal anonymity

An american judge has decided that the RIAA, who are seeking to prosecute illegal filesharers, may not have personal information from Boston University about who was using a particular computer.

There were too many people around who could have had access apparently.

So if you’re going to share files at university, make a party out of it!
