Peer-to-peer (P2P) File Sharing and Copyright Safety

Peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing allows users to share files online through an informal network of computers running the same software. File-sharing can give users access to a wealth of information, but it also has a number of risks which can lead to serious network security issues. In addition, unauthorized distribution of copyrighted material using IU’s IT resources can result in costly legal penalties. Learn more by reading the Peer-to-peer File Sharing & Copyright Safety webpage .

University-Wide and Campus IT Policies

University-wide IT policies apply to all users of Indiana University information technology resources regardless of affiliation, and irrespective of whether those resources are accessed from on- or off-campus locations. IU Southeast-specific policies also exist.  Visit the Tech Services IT policies webpage to learn more.
