Ohio U. Questions RIAA Data

Officials at Ohio University are wondering how their institution became the top target for the recording industry's crackdown on illegal song swapping. The Recording Industry Association of America has sent 1,287 notices to Ohio University so far this academic year, more than any other institution during that time.

But OU officials say they have not seen any unusual traffic on their servers, reports The Post Online. The institution has warned students not to break copyright laws and has encouraged students to use the legal service Cdigix to download free music. Apparently not all students have been following the advice, and now Cdigix is getting out of the music business, leaving students to find free music elsewhere. –Dan Carnevale
