I agree that this definitely isn't it--why are colleges being targeted? Is it because of their almost exclusively young populations? C'mon! I agree that copywrited material needs to be paid for, but targeting institutions of learning just bites. I was in entertainment (granted, in my case it was mostly public) for awhile too and I also agree that the theft of material is not a good thing. Everybody in that business is not a gazillionaire and they and their families need to eat too.
